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 really regret selling this frame to spud. I sold it for what I payed. I've been thinking about trying to get it back. Oddly enough, I had a dream about this bike a few weeks back too. I think thats what made me want it.

I have access to a Schwinn prologue (sp?) that takes a 24" front wheel. I'm having some difficulty finding a rim and tire. Anyone have a lead on something for cheap?

Surprisingly fun to ride BUT not to work on.

Not uncomfortable, but VERY twitchy.

I never got the nerve up to lean over the front and skid.

Now residing in Sverige.


Have a tiny funny frame too -




oh, and it wouldn't be quite right if this didn't get a mention in this thread.

I love that it says "Pure Filth" on the frame, and immediately behind it is a dog licking his sack.

because some people think a funny bike is just a funny looking bike, also ape hangers are not funny or cool or stylish in anyway, especially when your damn surfer brother has to take up the whole damn shed with his damn bike because of it, damn you my damn surfer brother
