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)

My bars are naked by the stem, champ grips on the shoulders, and cloth in the drops. I can snap a picture if you want.

Yeah, the 3T Mutant Classic. It's a nice stem... it was way too long for me though. That bike has been rocking risers for a while now:

Dunno what frame that mcatano has, but wrap around seatstays are a trademark of old british bikes. I got em too, they rule.

Looks like a Witcomb (like the one I'm gettin. Yeeeaayaah). Witcomb rocked the wraparounds seatstays and the dropous look Holdsworth which they were known to use back in the day. Could be talking out of my arse though/

Yea, talkin' out yer arse drunkboy...
Those ends were the most common ends used in Britain. Holdsworth, Rotrax, Harry Hall, Gillot, Carlton, etc. etc. all used them at one time or another. Wraparound stays were nearly as common with nearly as many builders. Even with a serial no. it would be nearly impossible to name the builder based on frame characteristics.

IOC, decided about the tubing for your frame yet?

If any of you Londoners can track down any info on a builder named stan miles from the 50's I'd be VERY interested. And yes it has the same track ends and wrap around seat stays.

The only marking on my frame is the word, "PURSUIT," stamped on the underside of the bottom bracket shell.

It's the best city I've ridden in so far. Insanely vigilant bike advocacy, very mild traffic congestion, strangely considerate drivers, lots of comrades on bikes are all good reasons for Pittsburgh being one of the better cities in the country for cycling. As far as Free Ride, yeah, I went there almost every day it was open this summer; it's where I cut my teeth working on bikes and learned how to be uber resourceful, as they get stock via donation.

add grips all you want, but no bike is complete without gorgeous lugs like those on that 128 bike!
