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)

Identify this Trispoke!

Was randomly browsing the internet and this popped up.




I was wondering what brand it was? I was inclined to say TriSpoke, but the valves are in a different location.

The thing that's not making me doubt the Trispoke is


Valve.

Could be an early HED?

Same with the spin

that is definitely NOT a pre-HED specialized wheel!!

this is a pre-HED. note how the arms feature straight sides, not the gradual curved transition.
