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 just had my shop order one for me, only the Ti model comes in white.

www.cbike.com has them for $109 in white or black.

they weigh 300 grams, and it was very comfy when I owned one about 20 years ago.

i've got one. its super pretty, but it feels about the same as a selle italia gel flite, just sliiiightly wider. i like it, but i don't recommend it for distance riding. i find its pretty solid if i'm doing under 25 miles a day.

edit: oh, and trackstar has one or two.

I ride one; I find it pretty comfortable, and damn near the best looking saddle out there. I like the width and profile. I routinely ride 5-6 miles on it at at a time, and after I got over the initial shock to my @ss, i think it's great.
