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)

Peloton Info (Paging CEYA...)

Seems like info about Peloton is pretty scarce on the internet. I know they're famous for the filet brazed frames they do and that's about it... anyone have any info on them / the builder ****amori?

ok, so i've been doing my homework on shi.tamori as well, and there really isn't a whole lot of info. the best i can tell is that he's willing to make a lot of NJS certified frames that stray away from the traditional keirin design in the sense that he uses non-standard geometries pretty frequently, oversized tube sets, fillet brazing... yeah. he does lugged frames as well, and he worked for breezer cycles in the late 80's and early 90's doing fillet brazed road frames. i think with a good deal of triple butted steel tubing.

ceya and sasha know more about him than i do, all i know is that my bike is pretty ****in' awesome



EDIT: remind me to add links later to the breezer cycles info. also, this is the internets; please don't take my off the top of my head comments too seriously until i can back it up with some kinda proof. ...actually, just don't ever take anything too seriously.
