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)

Even after 12 years, your fillet-brazes are stronger than Reynolds tubing (and my teeth).

Thats normal for a frame to fold there and not the brazes. Ive killed countless BMX frames and they almost always died like that. And they have WAY thicker, stronger, better tubing than a road/track frame.
