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)

More photos of Maroon please. I'm seriously considering picking up one of the clearance steamrollers in that color.

i suppose technically you could debraze the crown, chop the legs, and rebraze using a jig. if you have those skills and equipment, though, might as well just make your own frame and fork.

Tubus Logo, or maybe the older version of the Cosmo.

Thanks to those who posted pics of the black frame, I wanted to make sure if it was a glossy black or a flat black, looks pretty nice but I'm not sure if the cream is a better color.
