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)

To be filed under **** I can't afford...

Maybe this was mentioned earlier, but it looks like our Canadian homeboys Cervélo are going to be coming out with a track version of their P3C TT bike soon (since they stopped making the P2T a couple years ago). *insert inappropriate grunt here* The World Pursuit Champion used a converted P3C to whip on his countrymen, and big C used the news to drop that little tidbit (read here).

As if that weren't cool enough, other sections of their website mention that they're planning on making a 'cross version of their thoroughly awesome road bike (the R3).

I heart Canadia.

When i was beholden to the Soloist this summer, via the shop i worked, I have been such a huge fan of Cervelo. I was thinking of trying to convert their p3 tri frame to a fixed gear. Anyways, Cervelo +1
