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)

i lose at the search function (need pics)

maybe some of you have these saved. they're from the fgg and posted here, but i can't find either on either site.

1)chrome mtb with slicks and drops, from spain if i remember right.

2)gt (i think) bmx set up pursuit style. from philly if i recall correctly.

anyone have these pics? i have a ridiculous build in mind and these pics have inspired me, but i want to look closer at both.

yes! both are what i was looking for....i eventually realized the mtb was from spain and looked on fgg for spain...but goddamn, you guys are on the ball as always...

sometimes i think i spend too little time on here anymore, but then i realize that i'm spending more time in the real world, riding my bike. so, whatevs. off to bike polo now.

The MTB has long been a fav of mine. Has anyone ever tried those Ritchey "Moby Bite" 2.1" slicks? How are they on wet surfaces?
