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)

Ferris, he never drives it. He just rubs it with a diaper.

I would buy it, but only because I need something to go with my platinum cranks, and diamond studded Velocity rim set. My tires are baby whale skin, and my saddle is the pelt of an adolescent gorilla - a specialty of brooks. My spokes you ask? The baleen of the blue whale who's skin is for my tires, naturally. I expect my chrome ultra-metro will be coming in the mail any day now. A specialty run done entirely in panda skin. It was dyed red by carefully draining the blood from many kakapo (New Zeland's largest, fatest, rarest, and least able to fly parrot) and soaking it in the aforementioned fluid for a fortnight to acquire the correct shade of crimson.

... sorry... went off the rails there a bit. However it is a pretty bike, but in reality I'd prefer sterling silver to gold.
