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)

Chicago- Anyone have Miche Cogs?

I am thinking about heading up to the NOS sprints this weekend. However, it is painfully obvious that my gearing will not be sufficient. Is there any shop in chicago that stocks Miche cogs?

That would be easier, but also more expensive
