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)

Adidas x Marinoni

I don't normally venture outside the Toronto thread so please excuse me if I forget that I've even posted this and don't respond quickly if at all, but I wanted to quickly share a project bike that some friends of mine recently completed in conjunction with Adidas Canada & Marinoni;



A couple more pics here if anyone is interested.

Adidas knows who to partner with... and the paintjob is pretty tight too.

I hate to resurrect old threads but this bad boy is finally being auctioned off. If I didn't just build a new bike I would bid on it. Very sweet bike for a great cause.

Beautiful bike. I'm planning on ordering a Marinoni this summer. Any idea how much stock pista cronos run for?
Once I finish school and get back to working full-time I'm calling in and setting it all up.

$795 currently at La Bicicletta in Toronto. After looking for a nice track frame, I think I'm going to order a steel Marinoni Pista this week.

That was my thinking, it looks like a re-badged Fuji Track Pro. Is it?
