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)

found at my parents house...

my brothers old dave scott centurion. it's in really good condition considering it's been left outside in louisiana for at least 5 years. no chips in the paint so very little external rusting, but probably a good bit inside the tubes. i tried to talk him into giving it to me but he wouldn't. he's letting me take the mavic bullhorns off of it though, and im gonna help him convert it to fixed while i'm in town this weekend.
