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)

Was just wondering when this thread was happening. Can't wait for the snow to melt and the roads to be salt/sand free....

Raise me? Sir, I'll have you know that if indeed your bike is as it looks to be ( 49cm ) than my 51 has a full 2mm more in effective top tube lenghth.... and I would be loathe to trade my '100%chick designed' decal



for your 'no brakes!'

I do approve of your color choice though;-)

Except, mine also has the "100% Chick Designed" decal, but it's located underneath the bottom of the downtube where you don't see it in the photo.

With gas prices at an all-time high, it's time to get practical with our single speeds.
