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 think maybe the seatpost is too small for the seat tube and the bottom seatpost clamp on the frame won't keep it tight, so a second clamp was added on top that fits on the seatpost to keep it from slipping down.

Customize in the cycling world means it is just made to fit you and you only...people use that word to sound cool but really, it's just lame to describe a bike.

HAHAHAHAHAHA...

I emailed him telling him I could get all the stuff he named for $50 and he never answers, he just reposed his ad with that money estimation of each of his "custom parts" lol.
