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)

Nice, but kinda uninspiring. Interestingly, the D/A cogs look like Tomity's ground and polished D/A cogs (and are priced accordingly).

I visited this shop when I was in berlin--great guys. In fact, when I went there, it was actually closed, but they were setting up for a party that night and I stayed for a while looking at all the old jerseys. I get a kick out of the fact that I saw maybe 3 track bikes in berlin over 4 months, and yet there is a track bike store there.

I don't get that place. Is that a bike shop with a coffee problem, or a coffee shop with a bike problem?

Are all the bikes/jerseys/etc. for sale, or just to add to the decor of the coffee shop?

From what Mo told me it's more of a coffee shop with some bike stuff. But the website certainly makes it look like they have a bunch of cool stuff.

is it possible to have a frame shipped to the us? what might i be looking at as far as shipping costs? how would i pay, because of the difference currency? excuse me im 16 and never really bought anything from overseas, but that link may have ended my 11 month search for a frame.
