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)

I've been mulling over the idea of getting a Big Block for a while. They're good bikes, and I'd like to ride a local bike. But I'm a tightass and they only offer 1 color option for the frame.

no, seriously, it's a ****ing AWESOME bike.

it's like steel on steroids.

rode behind one for a minute tonight, remembered riding it. it's really a stunning bike, from the paint to the tubes to the geometry. just a solid bike, everything about it is dialed and as good as it can be.

i want the nature boy though, that thing is bliss.

The custom track end is a nice touch... gives the bike a more distinct identity.
