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)

Hmmmm......A competetively priced frame that won't burn up on re-entry? I think I might have to buy another.

So, what colors do the angus come in, then, because if they make green that would be sweet , thats what i want. My fixie is definatly gonna be an angus, but I would like a new color other than black, white sounds pretty sweet, though.

Did you go to the website? Black. They currently have limited supplies of orange and white though. Done.

So instead of easily finding that the XXX comes with YYY or is now available in ZZZ, I should monitored the changes in some long thread.

Need your world neat and orderly, Raymond?

but we're not necessarily discussing the frame instead he is just saying "angus comes in white!"
It's not like he is saying "how does the geometry of the WHITE iro angus compare to the BLACK iro angus?"
Anyway, this is the internet and who cares if a new thread is made?

Because we're almost to the end of the internet.

Apparently the fact that a sticky exists about cheap bikes means that no new threads may be started ever again abut any bike under $1000, nor frame under $600. Putting the word IRO, Surly, Langster, Rush Hour, Bowery, Pake, or the name of any other cheap bike or frame in the title is strictly forbidden.

There is also a picture sticky, so you better not be posting pictures of your bike in any other threads.

There's also a sticky about bike shops, so the next time someone mentions a bike shop it better be up there or I'm gonna have to get out the wet noodle!
