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 thought that too at first but with the silver ring, it just looked like something was lacking down there. That's what she said.

I never liked Brooks neither.

Though I think the Brooks is a perfect saddle for the built.

I used to dislike them too - but my Team Pro is by far the most comfortable bike seat I've ever placed my butt upon and I do think it looks great on this particular bike.

the angle probably makes it look worse than it is. From the side, it looks *slightly* better.



Though, yeah it's not the most beautiful fade job ever. That's the way it was made. Don't think I'll ever try to repaint it. When the time comes and I get sick of it, I'll probably sell it and get some other frame.

turbo reissue? how do you like it? I picked up a charge bucket because I'm cheap, but almost bought one.

It's an optical illusion. Right near the front fender mount.
