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)

Haha, thanks again. Won't be looking at any pictures for a while. Too tempting
What can you say about the frame breakthenorm, is it worth it?

Definitely worth it. Stiff, responsive, and light. Trifecta.

Don't know if they're receiving orders on it yet, but it's worth a try calling- my friend got a regular pista not too long ago from them- they screwed up the order at first and gave him free extra tires to compensate.

That's in the States, right? I'm going to Milan, Italy and Lisbon, Portugal in a month and see if I can find any reasonable ones there. If not, ship it from the states.

the pista concept is indeed a nice frame. i liked my '04 when i had it, but the allure of the familiar flex of steel vs. the rigid ride of aluminum, swayed me to sell it.
