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)

i have those exact same frame standers.. but when i was trying to tighten my chain tension, one of them lifted up.. i told my guy to step on it to get it back on the chainstay.. well he did so, but didnt realize that it was bending to get back down there.. so i have a normal shape one, and one that is totally bent, like 45 degrees.. **** sucks.. but my bike has lots of green soon the paint will be green too...

I use a plastic one on my main-squeeze, when the weather gets wet.

Deathhare, if that frame was my size I would have snagged it so fast, that is my exact dream bike. Same color, same make.

Can anyone tell me the significance of the color green in Chinese culture? I wore green to a professor's Chinese new year party and his wife nearly had a fit. Thankfully I was plastered and couldn't understand what she said. But I would like to know.
