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)

where did you order that from? http://www.kalavinka-bikes.com? I was looking around on there and there was a blue stem in the gallery section, and it looks like some of the other stuff in thre is for sale.

how did you go about ordering that... everything is in yen.
