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)

This post alone makes the thread worthwhile.

Even if I decide I hate the Arione, I can sell it on CL for more than what I paid.

HOTHOTHOT!

Sweet thanks. I just ordered one. I always wanted to try one but they're like $200 in the stores here and I don't want to buy a saddle that costs almost as much as my bike frame.

I love it when i see deals like this, then I hate it when I see

"Shipping + $6.99, Tax + 3.50"

So then the $40 deal you felt good on spending became a $50 deal you had to borrow $10 bucks for....

Meh, when places like REI are selling the seat for $150, meaning I can probably sell them for $100 a piece, $50 a piece isn't so bad.

im sorry but i had to lol hard at your maggie thatchet quote.

thatcher was a horrible PM, and an even worse human being. she took away programs helping the poor (ie the milk program), she deregulated industries which further elevated socioeconomic stratification (particularly in scotland - which is why she is almost universally abhored by the scots) and she was also a huge bigot.

All of his quotes pretty much pissed me off. But I won't get into that. You a sociology major or just happen to know your stuff?

I went ahead and stuck this. As long as we can keep it going with info/links to legit good deals like the one above, this thread can be pretty useful to most of us.

By the by, with regards to the magicshine for $30 deal up above...


I'd say there's about a 60% chance that will show up without a battery pack, which makes it less of a deal. I'd definitely get clarification from the seller on that.

Edit: Nevermind, first line says 4*18650 included

Still seems like there's gotta be a catch, but who knows.

Also these bags kick ass, I should take some sweet pics of my newest Blick Bag and put it in the custom Messenger bag forum.

For anyone who missed out on the Arione deal, I have a Nashbar Gr2 (arione knockoff) and it didn't fit me too well. I ordered the arione anyways just to give it a try, if it's the same results I'll probably be willing to sell mine for only a little more than what I paid(to cover shipping). However, if I like it, I'll be keeping it.
