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)

not direct. There's one in my size at a bike shop for 500. I was going to go for a surly crosscheck but this is too good a deal to pass up if i can put fenders on it

Why not go check it out? I think the frame is much better than a Surly. I've wanted one for a while. I know they're closing up shop so I've been curious if you had a lead on the much anticipated "clearance".

I don't think they come with eyelets though. Call your bike shop?

And yeah i was looking for that direct clearance when i found this one

SKS race blade fenders. They are only attached to the fork legs so they dont need a hole or
clearance under the fork crown.
