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 just got another pista!!!! infection green color!!!!

i couldnt resist it when i seen it on craigslist, so as a late b-day present i went to san francisco and picked up my new used pista, (along with a chrome hip bag and cell holster) and had a hella good time riding around the city as soon as i got it i changed the pedals, and flipped the stem. when i got it home i pulled the brake off and changed the cog to a 17 and got to cleaning, it came out very nice. i just love the deda track drops!

Yup, gangrene, we'll have to amputate I'm afraid. Don't worry it won't hurt, if we didn't just run out of anesthetic.
