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)

Frame search

Is there a production aluminum frame with track ends, canti bosses and rack mounts? Something like the Iro Rob Roy but not steel.

Steel bikes are fine. I like aluminum better purely for the stiffness and weight.
