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)

The pic is in ザピストバイクバイバル or whatever that mag was called....that is still out in bookshops now. That is where I saw it. Very sweet.

On the website it says they do vintage bike restoration....someone needs to organise a group buy on top tube hekomi repairs!

thanks ill check the bookshop.
the price theyd charge you to replace the top tube would probably make it not worth it. plus then youd need paint and maybe frame stickers if you cared.
