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)

Those 650b wheels make your already overly large frame look even more huge. There was that photo of a basketball player riding a custom track bike posted not to long ago...

Thanks. There's not much I can do, though. That's the size frame that fits best and I got a good deal on the wheelset. I may get skinwall/black tires and if I like the the frame enough might build a 700c wheelset for it.

The bars are just some Japanese crap(Nitto) I had sitting around. When I get the Colnago pantographed Cinelli stem + bars, I'll most likely sew on some white leather.

Deep wallets.

Around here, the words crap & nitto usually don't go in the same sentence.
