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)

How I envy you Sf folks and your riding areas. I was there for a week end of May.
Perfect weather.Borrowed a buds bike during the week to ride around and Saturday we walked on the Coastal trail to the bridge, then to Fishermans piers then to the ferry Bldg when the trolleys were backed up.

Sunday a group of us rode thru GG park; was so much fun watching families with young kids who were riding trikes and with training wheels zooming around the park. We went out to the bridge, across it to Marin co,had lunch and took the ferry back.

You folks are so very lucky to live in such a civilized part of the world. When I was there in Oct and Nov I rode from SF along the PCH to Malibu. Perfect weather,fantastic views,coming from FLAT SoFla the hills were interesting and the camping was outta sight

I heard that going on when we were riding around Oakland. Should have stopped in. Battle of the surf bands wasn't going on when we were at Hotel Utah...

Nope, got the frame, have to clean the garage before I can build it up. Plus, my anniversary isn't until next weekend anyway. I'll post pics when it's all built, but none until then. I'm going to try to build it all NJS, except for tires and rims of course, wouldn't want to run tubulars on the street...

Mine is like that but in muuuuuuuch better condition. Same color, but with a bunch of glitter thrown in. Also, it's Columbus Genius tubing, and the frame is chromed underneath the paint. Wherever there's a paint chip there's bling-bling chrome showing through...

Waiting on a bunch of NJS stuff a friend is hopefully bringing from Japan. The frame came with a Sugino 75 BB and Hatta Swan headset.

How can you have enough love for both the Walker _and_ the Kiyo?

The Walker gets track-love, the Kiyo gets street-love. It's that simple. The Walker still gets the display stand in the garage though, fillet-brazed > lugged.
