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)

Velo Orange - legit oder nicht?

Got this link from the road forum: http://www.velo-orange.com

sells a lot of vintage and old-timey stuff with the same aesthetics as the other now-defunct yahoo shop... the japanese dude in Norcal


prices are good - considering their MKS road pedals. anyone bought from them?

I bought a bell from them. Took about a week to get to me. No complaints.

I bought a chainstay protector too. Shipped quickly. I didn't like the way it looked and sent it back for a refund with no problems, no questions asked.
