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)

cannondale with what looks like track ends, but it's got cable guides and what may be cantilever mounts on the seatstays maybe?

Yeah those aren't track ends, they are cannondale's old cantilevered dropouts, which are vertical.

Also that's a MTB frame I think.

It's a Cannondale criterium series frame. It is stiff as buggery and a horror to ride on the road. Pity though, I haven't seen one with track drops. A friend has got one (ss conversion) and the dropouts don't support the seatstays, which is clever.

The other thing s just plain ****ing queer.
