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)

I actually like it a lot better than some other bikes posted. It's a good price too.

They're ugly but they're just stickers. I think polka dots would look okay, but not that color.

I saw it on the ATL craigslist too. I gotta say, not a huge fan of the chicken pox. That bike needs an oatmeal bath.

I just can't imagine putting that many stickers on a bike and it not looking tacky. I mean, even if it were painted on, it would still be a bit of an eyesore, but the stickers, I would think, just look cheap.

The same bike with crappier wheels sold on eBay last week for $1800 and this guy is selling it for $800. Why are you here, posting, and not on your way to this guy's house with $800 in hand?
