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)

$35 to buy, $25 to ship. If anyone is interested, I'll review the bag once I get it.

Really?

Pictures please. I called them the next day and asked them if I could change to black/black. They said "no problem" haha. Hopefully they actually send me a black/black.

They're in Ireland though, so it will be 20 some dollars for shipping. That might come out a little cheaper still, though.

I definitely want one then. Seriously though, the first day of school and my ass felt like it was going to fall off riding around campus. I seriously need a new seat. Too bad I missed that Arione deal. If anyone can offer me a good price on a comfortable seat for a reasonable price. hit me up. Arione or brooks b17 for sure(or any other good seat).

whats everyones take on arione angle?

i used to have the front slightly angled up, but i want to decrease nether pressure. i thought to have the front level, but when i sit there, it dips quite bit so im going to give it a try with the front angled down slightly. it looks very odd with the rear kicked up so high, but well see.

I think there was a thread at 33 or 41 about saddle angles a couple of days ago. Some believe that flat saddle should be completely levelled, some says that it doesn't really matter if the saddle has cury surface.

Most Ariones I've seen are complete levelled, but I've never ridden one before...can't say anything about it.

At 80 bucks..that SE Lager is looking mighty attractive to me....

I just wish it didn't have all the branding...a plain black (or any color) frame would have been a definite buy for me.
Even so, its still a step up from where I am now.

I may have to pull the trigger.

hahah.

Also, my Arione and Rb021's came in today, hopefully will be trading the arione for a selle italia gel flow slr. Didn't mount the rb021's because I didn't have a brake cable to use.
