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)

I'm asking out of ignorance.

There was a couple on Long Island when I used to live there who took extreme pleasure at performing tandem track stands, typically during well attended group rides at the most crowded intersections.

Yes. I would put a different saddle on there. A SSM Regal, or this.

I think the Turbo Special works well on that De Rosa.

A white Regal or yellow Turbo would be nice too but **** a Cambium.

I'm ignorant to old track bikes, but it seems the current saddle or the one's Scrod mentions would probably be more period correct than a cambium.

Yeah, a Cambium would be out of place. That, and I think they're kinda ugly in general.
