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 know, but i've always been a fan of curved seat tubes and triple triangle... and especially of combinations of the two. looks cool.

the welds aren't exactly anything to write home about but they aren't bad. never heard of the "company"... another ebay brand i suppose.

I kinda like it. Reminds me of geekhouse.

If I had 400 to spend on a frame, this would probably be a contender

Ends have very interesting built in chain tensioners. Has anyone seen one like that?
