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)

They looked new. I hoped you didn't put them on, that's why I didn't mention how hideous they are.

Put them back on CL.

Replying with quote because I know how much it sucks to post your pic as the last post on a page and nobody sees it

That thing is friggin sweet!!! I've wanted one of those for about a year now but could never find one in my price range.

So.... Are you going to tell all of us who are patiently waiting what you stole it for??

300 bucks. The CL ad title was like "really nice bike for a tall person." I didn't waste much time.

That's so awesome. I'm jealous.

There was a '92 Cannondale aluminum road bike(in that Cannondale ice blue) on craigslist nearby the other day for $200. I passed on it and I regret it.
