    Those r the single speeds with vertical drops that have the adjustable bottom bracket?

    Kind of neat looking but why the heck didnt they just give it horizontal drops?

    20 pounds is light, very, my fixie weighs way more than that and my mountain, yeah gods, prolly over 30.

    The excentric bottom bracket is to make running disk brakes easier.

    Yes, 2 years! This is my third bike. I have a tricked out 1987 Diamondback Arrival. I can no longer put any more unique parts onto that bike, so I started thinking about putting a new bike together. I have been looking at vintage/unique bike parts for awhile. I knew that I wanted the Snowflake Pattern rear wheel lacing, but could not find anyone that could do it. I happened upon a bike messenger one day who had the lacing that I wanted! So I finally found the name of someone that could lace up my back wheel (Marcus at Yojimboís did the lacing for me). I also wanted the Moustache Handlebar brake setup, like on the old 1990ís Bridgestones. Two brakes up front and two dummies on the rear. (I convinced a buddy of mine to do that setup on his Rivendell Ė photos enclosed) It just took me awhile to get the funds together, (and to justify the costs to myself) and to choose a frame. Then one day I saw the 1FG. I was hooked. Getting the parts together took another 14 months. So technically I have been thinking about this bike for over 2 years.

    You're a very good collector, excpet for the 1FG part. Now, go hang that thing up in the trophy room and start on the next project. May i suggest a 22" circa 1990 Yeti FRO Pro in turquoise?

    Thats funny, my everyday bike is a 1971 Schwinn Varsity. And by the way, I would love to get a 1990 Yeti! BTW, why don't you like the 1FG? It is very well made, and it has a bottle opener on the dropout!
