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 like the geometry of the frame (really steep, only frame I can find with a 75 head and seat tube angle), but the colors suck... if I end up buying one, I'm covering it in electrical tape, aka urban camoflauge.

Bianchi San Jose (not pista)

Also, I think the green with no decals and black components would look good. I had a chrome w/ no decals for a little while.

When you say "descent fork", do you mean one like that of the 163 km/hr guy that fell apart and caused him a body-bruise? Cause if you do, please video tape you getting efffffed up on it.


but really, it's a lose-lose choice. i mean, who wants either?

I voted chrome with my wallet last week. Called around the LBSs and no one had chrome in stock ... but everybody was eager to sell me the green (that should tell us something about how the market is voting ). I ended up ordering a chrome one online -- delivered in two biz days & then I got to work making ...
