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)

Ben's was the first place I checked as their customer service and shipping times have been awesome in the past. However, I only saw the mavic open pro available, and no CXP33.
