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)

I was looking at the angles of the frame,
75 seat tube
72 head tube
I've never seen any other frame like this.
I can only think that the steep ST is for better spin while the slack HT is for better offroad control/comfort.
Is there a reason no one else does this?
Or am I just not looking hard enough.

Hrm, I haven't heard any mention that this frame is something other than blue... Red should be nice, though.
