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)

sugino 75 (*ducks!*)

I'm having some serious trouble finding the crank set in black...WITH THE OLD LETTERING. Anyone know of a website that still sells them with the block sugino 75 logo? I love you all.

Look at it this way, like the 3-series/M3 comparison: if it's someone whose opinion is worth hearing, they'll know they're 75s, not RDs.

That said...who cares?

They said "Sugino 75" just like the silver cranks.

You probably won't find any of the old style from any store because all of the suppliers probably have just the new style label. Most shops probably don't keep a huge inventory of these cranks. Your best bet is used.

I'd love to get a custom Waterford and put 'Huffy' decals on, just to mess with people.

Something to consider, young padawan.
