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)

Boston - Somebody snag this!

http://boston.craigslist.org/bik/134651707.html

Dude has a Schwinn Paramount that he is selling for $25.

"We looked all over for the brakes, and we couldn't find any"

Somebody let me live vicariously through you. Please.

I think someone is just trying to get a rise out of folks.

If they really were as dumb as they claim they would not have included a picture of the track fork and the 531 decal.

If it really has been sold, I feel tempted to email the seller and let them know the real value of what they had.
