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 still think the $449 Salsa Casseroll Single sale is a really good deal. These bikes retail for close to $1000 and normal street pricing is in the $600 - $800 range. I've got one on the way. http://www.universalcycles.com/shopp...6&category=483

Yeah. I got the free arm warmers last time I ordered the Pro Race 3's. They're royal blue and have a Michelin logo on them

Too bad they dont have any big sizes. I like that it has a derailleur hanger.

Is he also selling an extra small Affinity Lo Pro as well?

Does anyone have any experience with that Knog computer? I'm debating whether or not I want to get it. I suppose it's nice and convenient since it's wireless...

I'd be down another $51 or so, too.

Friend didn't specifically like it over his former Cateye Micro, but for a good cheap computer that you can switch around with ease, it does its purpose.

Too many deals on the FTP! MUST RESIST BUYING!
