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)

Honestly we are not trying to spam- we want to do our part to help out the forums with questions/etc. Have been talking with our bikeforums rep about making a new area for product announcements- would be nice to be in the right category No harm intended

You literally took the audio from the Macaframa video?.... not the same song, but the ACTUAL audio from their video? You can hear the audio from them biking/skateboarding and talking still in the background haha.

I may have thought for a moment that I was looking at pictures of real bikes when I first opened this thread, and I was saying to myself.... "something's not right here....."

Hey, cut 'em some slack. It's the middle of winter in Wisconsin. Cabin fever makes you do strange things.

But what happened to that head tube?

Hey, man. I love capitalism. There are a lot of hipsters with cash burning a hole in their pockets.

I have a buddy that won't shut up about aerospokes whenever he gets a few beers in him. I can't tell him a thing cuz he won't listen.

More power to you guys.

Did I actually see the tire come off the front wheel in the video after that super gnarly skid down the hill (aerospoke box)? LOL
