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)

from craigslist... why??



Steel frame road bike - $250

Road bike I built from a modified steel track frame. Mostly Campy components, includes look style pedals. 9 speed, no front deraileur. Reverse mount for rear brake. Nice deep v wheels are worth the price of the bike alone.

54 cm frame (track, not regular road geometry - more aerodynamic but a bit less comfortable). For 5'8" - 5'10" tall person, give or take.

I'd ride it. Looks like fun.

Also: I'm a fan of Snowden.

I would ride it also, just for the hell of it. I mean, it makes for a weird bike.
