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)

What an amazing photo! The IRO Serra.

I like this developing trend of bikes paired with large outdoor art.

Classy indeed. It's looking like the Japanese bikes are prettier these days.

Potus... gorgeous bike. Does e-framebank have a storefront location in Japan, or did you buy it online and have it shipped to someone you know there?

I finally finished it today. It's my first fixie, and it's fun as hell to ride. I'm still waiting on the Eggbeaters, but other than that, I think it's done.





Later,

I'm not sure if they have a storefront or not. I'm pretty sure they're in Okinawa so it's a bit out of the way. I was living in Japan when I bought the frame so I had it shipped to my crib.

Ahh... ok.. My wife's brother lives in .jp, so it'd be feasible for me as well. I'm actually planning on going to Cycle Recycle Depot and Kalavinka while I'm there, was just curious if e-framebank had a storefront as well.

Here's to hoping for a nice cheap frame

Hey CEYA - sprints at zero-8 during the CMWC! Awesome! (just read up at OLDSKOOLTRACK.COM) Nice work man, way to be there for all the racers.

PS - if the LEVEL is a 54cm, sell it to me - it looks so very alone! HA!

I thought I'd bring this bike to everyone's attention again, for no good reason other than it's awesome.
