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)

I don't find it aesthetically pleasing, but the ad seems fairly descriptive. Are you just going for the bike being ridiculous, or am I missing something?

^^This, and the price were my point.

Not sure why this would get locked. I'm not insulting anyone here. Just wanted to highlight an advertisement for an overpriced bike. I suppose this thread could be a replacement for the JA thread, but without the personal attacks. You never know, the extra exposure might just help owner of this masterpiece sell it more quickly.
