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)

Bianchi San Jose in DC area

Where would I look for San Jose in DC area? I'd like to see how it rides before deciding if I want it. I went to Big Wheel Bikes in Arlington, but they didn't have it. They offered to let me ride Volpe, but it was wrong size (I need 58cm). City Bikes in DC don't seem to have it.

Any leads appreciated.

Definately try College Park Bikes. They have the San Jose, and more fixed gear bikes than I have ever seen in a bike shop.
