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)

Oh Kanye!

Although I'm not sure I would consider him a track person he sure knows how to laugh at himself.

I need to find out where I can get these.

He also has a Cinelli Vigorelli. There was a bunch of **** on here earlier this year (or last?) when he got it, and a bunch of people decided then and there that hey didn't like Vigorellis anymore.

Right now, I think we're all assuming that Kanye doesn't ride his bikes because we (collectively) don't like him, and this way we get to mock him for that, too.

Prolly was consulted. The bar ends were machined at BMW, and designed by Supermighty aka EddieBrannan who is an occassional poster on here. I saw a set a BMW when I picked up my new frame on friday. Pretty funny.

On a side note, an awesome shop. BMW not only builds all of thier frames in house, but they also machine every part of thier jigs in house. Top to bottom, all made right there. Pretty rad if you ask me. Thier stems, barends, seatposts, pedals are all made right there too.

And if anyone is wondering, thier gangsta is awesome. I have rode the hell out of it the last few days, a great bike for city streets.

I like kanye plenty. I hope he rides, too many people here act like you cant enjoy a bike unless it's a piece and you've been riding since god himself conjured up track bikes.

Luke at bMW also told me that a friend had it build for Kanye. He custom ordered a color, just like everyone else can, and had to wait for his to be ready, just like everyone else. No special treatment, he had to wait just like you and me.

Remember when Prolly told us that Kanye was going to show up for his little fixed gear trick party? Did that ever happen. Also, what happened to Kayne's Cinelli? That's a way better bike than than ugly-ass BMW monstrosity.

No! Dont tell us that! You are forbidden to present information that makes it harder to hate him. CLEARLY he cant appreciate that bike! I've met him, seen him ride, heard him talking about riding and he DOESNT.
