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)

The last two fixee frames we've sold on eBay have gone for more than the Buy-it-Now price.

Which reminds me...

well, it's not like the seller forced someone to pay that much, that is what the bidding market decided it was worth. if that's what it sells for, then that's what it sells for.
