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)

The XL model is bloody huge and prices are dirt cheap

I'm thinking shipping would kill us Americans. And WTF is a Euro? How come those foreign people aren't speaking English?

How am I doing so far?

Because you didn't click the 'English Version' link at the top of the page. Duh.

18 euros = 23 dollars
28 euros = 35 dollars

they seem like a good deal, but shipping to the states would probably be rediculous.

the euro price looks very reasonabe, when you convert it to pounds sterling it looks even more attractive.
plus postage shouldn't be too bad to the uk

Nope, I'm still confused. I thought the term 'euros' was an English word... Just not an American one...

It looks like a good deal... for Europeans. But to have it shipped to the States would cost even more, then throw in the shipping for overseas, and you betcha they'll stop the package at the border and force you to pay the import tax fees, and before long, you've shelled out twice what you paid. :-/

I got the Tour de France water bottles once from the letour.com store, and it cost like $15 bucks for 10 bottles. I was thrilled until I got a call from Customs saying they had my package and I had to pay fees. By the time it was all done, I'd paid about $35 bucks for the water bottles. Totally ridiculous.

that'd be one of those green folding things that I don't usually have, right? I was thinking more of the fact that the word came from the European Union or something. It's a 'real' word. Much more real english than 'WTF'

What is an actual currency anyways? To me it's all everybody agreeing something is worth something, and that somthing is probably somthing that I could print in my spare time at work....

Anyways...

the oldschool, one-shoulder messenger bag, with a lot of pockets, holders, closures, and extra options. the outer layer of the bag is cordura, and the inner layer is a waterproof polyurethan truck-tarp material.

Sounds pretty good to me.

And, shipping to the states shouldn't be more than $10-$12.
