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)

If it's what you want, yeah. Personally, I wouldn't want it for any purpose I can think of, so I wouldn't buy it.

Been combing CL in search of new/old 1980's road bikes & stumbled upon this thing & wanted to share. It's too nice for what I'm looking for but seems like a possible steal. i enjoyed looking at it & hopefully you do too.
