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)

2008.5 Special Edition Paddywagon

I acquired the last one in the 54cm sizing, paid for it today but it's just gotta be built up... the wait is killing me. Special Editions are the following in case anyone cares:

-Dark Grey Frame (like the 2009 Colour scheme)
-Vintage Kona Logo on the head
-2008 Groupo, so it's got the plain black rims and not the yellow 09s

Other than that it's the same ol bike. I've ridden one a few times and I'm looking VERY forward to owning one. They are quick, responsive and VERY smooth. Happy pedaling everyone!!

I'll post up a pic of the bike when it's finally in my grasp. I'll also pop a couple of the SE differences.
