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)

Felt Brougham - Love mine!

Thought Id share, since I didnt see a lot on the net about this bike.

Great bike out of the box, all Ive changed are the bars so far, will need some cages for the pedals when I start to ride fixed. Rides like butter!! Very fast capable bike.

The color combo seems to be love or hate. Ive had nothing but compliments about it. As time moves forward Im sure Ill move to a less "panda" theme.

for some reason the only thing i find really annoying are the mismatched brake cable housings. everything else looks okay, but that just looks sloppy for some reason.

also, swapped wheels is looking good. and I now understand bullhorn luv

i want to eventually change the bars and stem on mine. but its stock other then the pedals and its a great ride as is. i have people of all age stop me and say what a nice looking bike it is, kids, grandparents. my first fixie and i love it. if anyone has any stem or bar suggestions throw em at me. i want to stick with risers or straight bars, would the nitto jaguar look stupid on this bike?

i really dislike the colorway. Though i guess this probably goes along with the trend of off the peg tarck bikes.
