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)

They need to hire someone to do their graphics. Jesus I'd do it for free.

Yeah, I hate that crap. Fuji is really bad about that, too. When will bike manufacturers realize that we don't want that all over our bikes.

It's like if we went to buy a Civic and this paint job was all we had to choose from:

Surely that's just a promotional show bike, and production models for sale won't look like that.

I think the real bike will look startlingly similar. Their graphics suck across the entire line of roadbikes and mountain bikes. Damn Germans.

It looks like Terminator melted and they made him into that chain. Also, I always look for websites to peruse on track bikes.
