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)

ive got a caloi beach cruiser... nice bikes. not sure if this is totally true, a friend once told me that lance won his first tour on a caloi way back when. 15 bucks for any frame in good shape is a great deal!

a few years ago a buddy of mine picked up a used, early 90's caloi mtb. al frame that seems to be of decent quality. also heard that bit about lance armstrong either riding a caloi before or being sponsored by them.
