Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

But surely you notice the performance difference. Less flex. Stiffer. You probably notice something like $300 worth of difference.

This thread is like 7 years old.... and it's Suntour Superbe Pro cranks. The stamp looks like what it sounds like, a NJS stamp, just google it.
