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)

Oooooooohh!!! The Montello is fighting for the title of the sexiest crazy carbon track monster with that Look or whatever it was. I think it just won as well. The paint job is not up to the level of the frame, but good God it's hot! The shoulder of the fork is a real winner. I dunno if it does anything, but I want it badly.

I was really hoping for a wavy ONDA fork, but the shoulder on the Montello will do. And the first one does have wavy stays, so that counts too.

Is there a reason for the wavy stays and fork blades or is it just for looks? I can't decide if I like the way it looks.

i understand why they are designed and look they way they do, but modern track frames are so UGLY.

The montello could still be cleaned up aerodynamically, too many little frills hanging about that would disrupt the airflow, give me my BT anyday
