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)

Nice. Looks a lot like my Wabi. I even considered the B17 with ti rails and matching leather bar wrap. How does it ride?

My client loves it! Dedacciai Tubing. He's 6'3 250. With light components it's weight was 16.3. Keep in mind its a huge frame. We're running tubulars so the ride is like smooth butta' yet confident and sharp through the corners.

the "ordering" is linked back to the home page -- perhaps this is intentional though because that is not setup yet.
the "webstore" links on the track, road, and craft page are not linked to the shop page like some other pages are.

just something minor I noticed. maybe a coming soon page would be less confusing for people.

i feel like i've seen this bike somewhere in person.

edit: upon looking at your site and seeing the columbus area code, was that the bike that was on display during registration at the bum shuffle?

I saw this at the Bum Shuffle as well, nice work.

Your address listed on the "Shop" page is really close to where I live. Is that your shop? Do you mind if people stop by? I'd love to take a look.

All my logo's graphics are paint. No stickers on my frames! My painter does an amazing job. Check out the road bike over in the road bike forum. The mini panel is 100% paint. It's unbelievable what Rory can do.
