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)

would you like to talk about? the fact that neither of these bikes is drilled for brakes???

the amount of plain stupid negativity is really high in here these days.

big bikes for tall people?? why the f not?

oh and i really like the second bike as well.

if anyone feels like being nice and has some scoop on a roadbike/frame of this size let me know!
