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)

eai toyo godzilla

hey to all,
first post here!

been riding fixed gear for a while now, but always with pretty cheap bikes. i recently moved to the uk , where nice things could be easily found, contrary to my home country, so i bought a Cinelli Gazzetta for a bargain.

i love my bike and dont get me wrong im content but everyone speaks marvels about de eai toyo godzilla or the bareknuckle so i kind of want the "best thing"

would you guys think the upgrade is worth it ?

im looking for a 52 by the way and travel to the states for work once a month so if anyone knows of someone selling one or where to get one lmk!

Both of these frames have an outstanding reputation and plenty of street/track cred. They are expensive, so maybe not worth it if you're happy with your Gazetta.

Production ended on both some time ago. Good used examples sometimes come up for sale in the Pedalroom Marketplace.

Retrogression, now located in Portland, Oregon, has some Godzillas in stock, but none smaller than 54cm. They stocked the Bareknuckle but are now completely sold out.

If you want the best, one of these frames might be just the ticket, however there are other frames that might be just as good for your purposes. There's the Big Block by All City. I haven't owned or even ridden one, but I've examined a few, and they're super nice. Wabi Cycles makes several models of steel SS/FG frames. I have no experience at all with them, but everyone I've ever heard from who owns one has nothing but good to say about it.

I already have the perfect single speed bike but if I were to buy another it would be a Godzilla.

If you want something really classy and money is no object, then get yourself one of these >>> https://www.retro-gression.com/colle...eset-51cm-pink

You certainly wonít get more FG cred anywhere else.

The downside is how much money youíll have to spend to get the NJS stamp on every component for it. I mean, whether or not you want those parts, thatís the law. 😆

I see that youíve posted a WTB at Pedalroom (as have a few other guys). That might be your best chance at finding one.

Good luck!

Of course it is a good deal, it is always an excellent deal when you don't post the price of the bike and any clear pictures. Those components are generally of some quality but if they are all worn out or damaged, they aren't worth as much.
