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)

puma sponsored a bunch of couriers in new york a few years ago (squid and alfred, among others) and gave them bikes. i would guess its one of those.

Yeah, judging by how the bike says 'Squid' on it. I would guess it was his bike for some time. I just recently saw an online video with him talking about it.

Puma was the first cool footwear corp to do it, but Nike has also followed suit and made an AF1 tribute bike: http://www.hypebeast.com/2008/01/nik...gallery?page=1

Hopefully you're winking because you're kidding, and not because you're a dirty con.
