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)

that does look really hot. but for $265, cmon now. i got their knickers and that was only because i had a bonus burning a hole in my pocket. rapha stuff is really nice, but you can get stuff that works just as well for a quarter of the money.

not saying i'd refuse one though

I like the way the Pearl Izumi jackets look better anyway. At about 1/4th of the price, I think they're a better deal.

Anyway, who the hell needs a jacket? It's 85F+ outside!

i like the rapha stuff for sure, but paying 1/4 the price for something comparable is ok for me. plus, i can spend more on bike parts....

GoLite has a pretty sweet wind jacket. It has a super cool sound effect installed where you sound like a sail when riding.

If you wear that thing out in public you are going to be immediately tagged as a fashion victim with more money than sense. What happens when you warm up a little and need to unzip it? The off center zipper is going to make that impractical.
