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)

If it were me buying the bike I would actually thank the seller for saving me the time to remove that ugly ass puke green wrap to begin with.

Probably an old picture and now there's no bar tape on there. If he didn't say bar tape not included, he'd have gotten angry calls from the green bar tape fetishist.

He MUST know. I bet his thinking was "dude...if this doesn't work, no skin off my nose, but if it DOES work, then hot damn!"

Right city to try it in, anyway.
