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)

Don't we all know thats what messenger bags and hip pouches are for, jeez....

Nah, really though, nice bike. Why the university colors and all though? Did they pay for it? If so, please send me the link to their application website.

Many things wrong w/ that pic. No white garage door, chain's not in the big ring/small cog combo, too much steerer showing, the valve stems are showing, the seatbag, etc.

That KM is nice. I've been enjoying a FG CrossCheck. Had it on some mild dirtpath last week and loved it. Not confident enough yet riding FG offroad, but I see it coming.
