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)

Seat: Serfas Aria Ti

I just got a brand new WHITE Serfas Aria Ti (retail for like $130) from my LBS in exchange for a 12 pack of mountain dew. At first observation, the seat is stylish, slender, and simple. It seems to have gotten good reviews on some websites, but I was just curious if anyone here had any personal experience with them? I mean, obviously it was "worth it", but I'd love to hear other people opinions!

Also, anyone near or in Rhode Island should definitely take the time to talk to Randy at Victory Cycles. This guy is the epitomy of what cycling is all about.

Pics? I couldn't find much online, just a top-down view.

Looks like their answer to the Selle Flite. Good score.
