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)

If by interesting you mean like a traffic accident you can't stop looking at, then I would agree.

Enjoy

leader knows how to pick their spokespeople.

i know a ton of hipsters who would be super impressed with such a swoopy, albatross beak of a frame.

Still waiting to see a 727 built up, but Emi's 725 looks awesome! I really want to get one.

You didn't know!? I am a weirdo.

No idea how they ride but in my opinion (which looks to be the general thought anyway) it's just a straight out ugly frame.
