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)

PS I'm thoroughly pleased with the amount of top tube pads, anodized parts, and matchy-matchy on this page. So many nostalgias.

I'd ride that Raleigh.

What kind of saddle is that?

And what's up with the rear hub - coaster brake?

Au contraire, a rear Chub hub weighs 28g less than a rear Dura Ace 7600.

SLR Carbon and Chub hubs. Can't even ride the bike because the hubs are so heavy.

Were they always on the road bike or was I imagining that they were on the Trek?

"Because Enve" was the answer I was thinking.
