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)

great OBS..

so i wanted a ciocc straight blade fork.. and i found one but it was attached to a frame.. from

http://www.RepartoCorse.com

so i emailed and ended up talking to this guy Ed who I guess runs the operation. He was super nice.. sent me a fork.. it turned out to be the curved blade (also really really nice) .. so he felt bad and sent me the straight blade right away.. and a shipping label to send the other back (which took me forever cause im lame and part of the reason im letting you all know about this place... so buy stuff..) oh.. and the ciocc straight blade fork was 50 bucks.. so.. the store doesnt have everything.. its a specialty place.. but worth checking out and great to deal with if they have what you need.. or ask.. i get the feeling Ed is a man that knows how to get things.. if you know what i mean.. thats all.. carry on..

I wasn't complaining, because sometimes a story like that deserves it's own thread. But having the site in the sticky means you don't have to do a whole lot of searching.
