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)

Gone fixed full-time on the Madison now!

No need for a rear brake or that expensive WI freewheel anymore.

I like the clean look better now and I am more than comfortable riding fixed now,. Even commuting on it.

I still have a my SS/FG KIlo TT as well.

I like this one much better than the yellow 09. I wonder what 2010 will bring for color...

My '08 Madison is also my introduction to fixed-gear-
The rear wheel hasn't been flipped to s/s since i pulled it from the box.


I originally was going to strip it down to chrome thinking the blue color was
kind of sissified, but with all the looks and comments I get on it,
there aint no f'n way!

the white gray red 07 is by far the best color scheme.

i don't like the whole retro look.
