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)

Y'know... I don't like it. It *is* like (HR) Giger spent a few days filing lugs. It looks like the kind of shape you'd see on a cf frame. That seatpost gave me a ***** though.

Nothing was filed here. Except for the Rossin engraving that lug is completely stock.
Check out the lug in the third row fifth one over.

I had one of those seatposts. I wish I'd never sold it, but it got me about $100.

Yup, I found this site when I was thinking of building a frame. I thought that lug was cool, but the one on the left is way cooler. You should look around on that site, they have a lot of beautiful lugs.

I thought you were Eric who I think lives in Davis and does the web site.

On an unrelated note, we are having a movie night at the Bike Kitchen in Sac tonight if you can get in.

Agreed, that one is way nice. It's almost perfect eh? just the right amount of fancy.

The Campyonly guy lives in Davis?
Yup, just checked the site, looked at the pics of his bikes, and those are definitely in Davis. Thanks for the heads up.

hahaha. I have one sitting in my odds and ends bin. I had no idea they were valuable; it's way too short for me to use on any of my bikes.
