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)

Japanese Saddles

Anyone know of some nice Japanese saddles other than Kashimax [which i guess aren't that nice when it comes to comfort]?

Look for anything by Ariake. Mines a Jaguar 2 and, again, not very comfortable. Gives righteous support when sprinting in the saddle though. Track saddles are made to not flex--great on the track--not so much on the street. Wear bike shorts!!
