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)

Decisions .............

Your thoughts,

Do i pick the non dented chipped white Reminton

Or

A restored Vivalo in the craziest RAME (spakles/metal flake) that I can think of?

I got a remi already and am happy with it. I'm sure another would compliment it but I have never been satisfied with the white pearl and my other steed is just navy. Whenever I see a rame'd bike I get these visions of grandeur.
how? dream big!

Custom. Nothing beats shaking the hand that made your frame.
