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)

is there a way to determine the year of you bike?

i just got an old bianchi from a used nike store and i was wondering if there is a way to tell what year it was made... maybe in the serial number or something...

any ideas?
