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)

I wandered into the MTB forum a few days ago and checked the "Post your rig" thread, and this was the first one that I saw... I just turned around and left the forum, figured nothing's gonna top that.

dude! never mind that ebay mess...you want to deal with a BFSSFG type, right?

i've got a 26.8 available:

$10. scratches extend ~1/4" about min. insert line...will probably be totally hidden.

had it on this for a while, but it was too much.

kalloy - pffft.

There have to be a ton of "classic" mtbs that have all the good stuff - Ringle, wtb brakes, magic motorcycle, cook cranks, kooka cranks, bar ends, onza clipless, syncros, etc, ad infinitum.

The bike pictured is a 2000-2001 aluminum rockhopper. Hardly untoppable, despite the loud-ass colors.
Still a cool ride.

In my dreams: Yeti ARC in team colors with anodized teal parts.
