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)

Super Important, TOP SECRET Suzue Information!

The last run - ever - of Suzue hubs.

Sometime next week we're getting three pairs of the NJS hubs, and one pair of the SB model. These things are hot. Also getting gold anozized Nitto Jaguar stem, Nitto Jaguar seatpost, some pedals, some bars, some bullhorns, and a couple of other fun things.

Because due to NJS rule changes, all of the NJS hubs will be out of carbon - like these (the new NJS Suzue ProMax carbon hubs)

(good luck skidding on a carbon hub)

Why on earth do they do things like destroy dies. Grrrrr. That's kind of a bummer, the SB's are supposed to be nice hubs.

For the same reason they cancel out plates in fine art printmaking I'm assuming. Increases collector value, to assure no more are produced.
