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)

When you get it, assemble it, and take it out for a ride, you'll have to post your first Karate Monkey experience.

I heard there were new frames out of Surly. I've been riding 29s for some time, my old Gary Fisher is wide enough to accomodate the fat tyres. It's a cool ride in the winter.
Not sure if I'll sign up for one or get a Seamroller, like I want, then there it Spot with some nice SS frames too.

That's my buddy Mike's. I think you rode w/ him in Florida w/ Dario.

I've got the moustache bars on my fixed gear and love them! I'm thinking of replacing the beater road bike frame w/ the KM.

That's an instant classic, right there....reminds me of seeing my first Ritchey Mountain Bike, in '83? '84?

Stripped down to basics, like all the best designs, a minimal canvas for you to adapt as taste dictates
