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)

is there some crazy down tube vinyl planned or is he from a hokey school of sizing?

some uber-tarck custom vinyl decal thing he asked me to sketch out for his upcoming build. dont ask - it's kinda stupid.

knowing the full length would makes it easier to design.

alright. just emailed surly and they responded quicker than I thought.

if anyone ever wants to know something nearly useless, the dt on a 53 cm steamroller is 62 cm.
