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'm usually not one to dwell on this... but "dose" spelling matter any more? Even when we talk about how much things "weight" I feel like we could take the time to type it out correctly. I dunno. Sorry.

Anybody ever considered that English can be a second language? He's probably not from US, and if I'm right, I commend the man for posting on an entirely English speaking forum.

Topic is begging for a moderator to fix the spelling. Kind of a boring topic as 99% of peoples bikes here is 19-23 pounds.

6 lbs.

But i haven't put on wheels, cranks, brakes a cog, spacers or a chain yet.
I have painted it and color coordinated the bar tape though.
The Bar tape is about .176 lbs. That's .079 Kilos for you Mexicans.

Too much insulting crap and too little substance. Thread closed.
