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)

I believe Conti makes some.

Have you seen the NASA bike on FGG? It is my favourite bike, bar none. I wish it had a close-up of the nip's though.

i just looked up the bike on FGG and it has changed to a windsor for some reason - used to be a roberts? anyways, they were vredestein fortezza track tubulars, but i wanted to see if there were any clinchers out there.
