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)

foil on the rear wheel, 650c front, mis matched pedals. seat tube that doesnt stay in place ultra lose headset that makes and awful DUN-DUN-DUN-DUN-DUN sound when you apply braking force in the front.
and some wierd fuqked up chicken scratch on the side that resembles the world "PiStA"
and it says moo everytime the drive side pedal is at 3 o clock
