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)

Yeah, Steamroller.

With the exception of the new flaccid, dick-like saddle, it's a great bike.

I have the SE Lager and very happy with it. It comes with alex rims and formula hubs which is awesome. I upgraded the tires, pedals, stem and bars. I train on this bike for sprints and go long distance.
