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)

Thumbs up to chucks's bikes dot com

I ordered some of his super cheap bullhorn bars and bar end brake levers. They got lost in the mail, and he was on top of it after my second query. After an agreed upon date (extended by me) he shipped a new set to me in about 3 days. Cool guy.

I had to trim the end of the bars so as to better fit the levers, otherwise, no problems.

Those El Torro bars had an out line that said "Syntace", I think they are Syntace rejects. I could care, they work!

I know someone who rides one of his Ti Tsunami's.....seems like a decent bike given the price. And he likes it. I don't think you could go wrong at that price. I've seen a few Al Tsunami's on the road out here. Chuck is local to me but he doesn't have a shop, although I've heard that he can make arrangements for you to meet him and pick up the stuff directly.
