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)

Go Go QUADZILLA!

So I bought some knickers from swerve and they were too tight in the thighs which makes me an official bad-ass. I sent them back for the sprinter's cut.

I wear 30" waist. My last pair of levis I bought doesn't fit my thighs either. So, they are fairly true to size in my experience. They are pretty nice though, I like em. Can't wait to get the next size and see how they fit.

I have a pair and they are sized a little weird. The waist actually seems a little looser than my levis, but they are definitely much tighter on my quads, which are developed but not freakishly so. Mine are the schoeller dynamic and are really stretchy so it's not uncomfortable.

it's an ad for a company called Alta Bikes.
Yes, they were singlespeeds.
No, that's most likely not actually the model's bike.

You have skinny guy with big leg syndrome (AKA, you ride enough that it shows). Welcome to the wonderful world of upsizing pants, and belts.
