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)

Nike Track Bike

absenter pointed this one out.

I actually really like it, though the way they laced the rear wheel makes me nervous, and the fork looks out of place. someone knew what they were doing though!

btw, what are those cranks?

Different bars, untwisted spokes. Perfect.

All white, polished lugs + that stem. Nice stuff.

Your killin me eddie! Those wheels are bad news, the stem is too short, the risers with Primo grips just dont go, the cranks suck(when it comes to actually ridin), etc. Yep...pretty much worthless.
