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)

Thank you Brown Santa and Brent!

Showed up at lunch today. The receptionist was toying with me saying "Nope, nothin for you today".

Don't keep a bike junkie waiting for his next fix...

Yea, gotta love architourture.

I already have the front, in blue. I have a rear singlespeed only (no fixed) in blue that this one is replacing. I couldn't live without the fixed in back and caught Brent a week before he did a blue batch.

Brent built my touring wheels. I owe that dude one overly-long semi-creepy man-hug.

They come standard on the Kiss Off mountain (135mm) spaced hub, which is what this is.

Trying to find a good home for the SS one this is replacing.
