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 know its itilain because i trust the person i am buying it from. i am told it is a solid frame. those arent the original fors in the picture.. the original forks broke when the previous rider jumped of a a crub not a frontal crash so the frame is strain and in good condition. it also comes with a stel fork with a trsck rake so i gues i have that option but i am gonna leabe the ones that are on ther now i think.

oh yea those stencils arent mine...they are the persons i am buying it from ...sorry

would it be a sin to put nitto risers on this bike...

handle bar sudgestions?

Frontal crash?? Wow... Other than that you should use:

Handle Bar: Cinelli Pista
Stem: Cinelli 2A
Cranks: Campagnolo Pista

there has been no frontal crash just a bent fork from jumping of curbs but that has been replaced with a carbon road fork. it also comes with a steel gt fork.

thos componets you sudgested are much $$$$

i was gonna get cinelli 65 centerium handle bars from geordi but as for those other componets i am not sure if that is i my price range.. i was thinking something more like bullet proof cranks or sugino rd cranks
will tehese cranks fit with my bb?
thanks
