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)

Soma Kamisori saddle (pics!)

Well, it's a fairly new product so I thought someone might like to see some pics.

I just got white one for my Bianchi Pista. I should probably get a pair of while grips to match...

Anyway, here you go. It looks quite nice and comfortable for my ride.

haha. very true about the sf carpets. all carpeted rooms i've lived in sf had this one.

It's comfy enough but I'm too drunk to test ride now. everything will feel comfy. I'll report back later. ;-)

From American Cyclery in SF.

It was $50. Good price IMO.

It seems like everything they sell is double the price it should be. I was in there over the summer and ran out screaming like a girl and gripping my wallet.
Luckily i didnt buy anything.

hmm. I donno. I've bought only small stuff from them but didn't think the prices were too high. somafab.com lists this saddle $59.99 so at least this one wasn't too bad.

BLIMP, I saw them there and didn't care too much, but your comment made me curious to see if they are supposed to be there. I've emailed Soma fab. Let's see what they say...

I buy some small stuff from American once in a while because no one else carries some japanese and soma stuff. They are kinda far from where I live so I go other LBS in SOMA area more often. I also like the guys at American, though.
