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)

So Jose R, fellow FG/SS poster here had been selling a Cinelli Track Grammo Strada Ti Stem.

Jose R's preferred payment method was a donation to the Louisiana Relief Fund.

Jose R, I hope you don't mind, but I just had to publicly recognize you for being a ridiculously good person.

Thanks!

I cut a perfectly useable stem like that off a bike in the shop with an angle grinder, because the owner didn't wanna spend the extra $5 in labor to remove the tape, cables and brake levers to get the handlebars free.
Oh well.

Did you know that when you cut ti with an angle grinder, you get pure white sparks? Cool.
