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)

There were a few flites in kelly green, but they're really hard to find. There are plenty of celeste saddles around. For some reason, green is a hard color to find and match up for bikes. Good luck.

their custom **** is expensive. i was going to go custom for my fizik arione, but then they came out with a special edition in the colors i wanted.

then again, a green fizik with a green metallic stripe would look dope.

Now if you still think this weak, you are just superman or woman. To go along with all the above reasons, I had not brought water or energy bars, I was probably still drunk. You dont forget **** like that when racing or riding long distances. Now to what you wanted to know, the kid that owns that bike gave me wated and part of every energy bar he broke out for himself. If it would have not been for him, I would have for sure died. Thanks John(that was your name, right). The kid just ****in rocks, that is all I have to say.

San Marco Rolls come in a wonderful green (hard to find) as do Selle Italia flites. Both the pictures are from recent Ebay auctions

the iro saddle is pretty decent. i just upgraded from it, but i'll likely stick it on another bike.
