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)

Show me your sloping top tubes

Tradition dictates that top tubes should be straight, but sloping top tubes offer versatility in frame sizing and design. Many here state that they will only consider level toptubes, no matter what the cost in practical functionality, but I am not one of them. So, come forward and show your sloping top tubes in defiance with tradition. Forward sloping top tubes are welcome.

yeah I second the forward sloping tube. Frames all pursuit-ed out make me weak in the knees.
