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)

Sannino!

I know it's vain and ridiculous to start a thread about my new frame, but I'm stoked and I want to share with you all. I've never had a true track frame before- been puttering around on old conversions for a while. I present to you: the SANNINO TRACK, made of Columbus Aero tubing, nice ole lugs, and chippy italian paint.

looks nice and seems in good shape. Good score.

One thing though, not for nothing, but if you're going to be riding around on a track frame, how 'bout you shave your legs. They should match the aero tubing.

Damn, that is a nice one. Glad you've finally scored your frame. Seems like you've been trying for a while (damn eBay).

That is more like it. I'm on a serious "Purple Rain" bender right now- the album, not the movie (although Appolonia is so foyne). The song "Purple Rain" is totally mindblowing, too, especially if you listen to it on a shetty old boombox in your van. Or, my van.
