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)

Cinelli makes a bunch of different flag tapes (Canada, Japan, Switzerland, US...), so I would think that they'd do a union jack as well. www.cinelli.it should tell you one way or the other.

According to Cinelli's catalog (http://www.cinelli.it/IT/pdf/catalog...sori_2006.pdf), they only have Italian, Swiss, and Japan.

Your search - "fruity bar tape" - did not match any documents.

Suggestions:
Make sure all words are spelled correctly.
Try different keywords.
Try more general keywords.
Try fewer keywords.
