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)

As much as I don't like to buy into the 'hype', I really want one of those frames.

Could go for an older Rush Hour Pro, as well.

By the way, you can make ANYTHING look fast and action-packed if you zoom in reality tight and wiggle the camera a lot. This is a trick in movies and TV shows to make otherwise lame fight scenes look interesting.

Too late for apologies. I have snipers on the roof across the street from your house.

As dumb as the video/commercial/whatever is, I really like the frame.

I actually think it's a nice ad. It's selling a feeling. Lots of company do this, Nike being the most prominent. They rarely discuss how their products differentiate themselves from the competition.

I think this commercial started that trend:

Macafail... they could've/ would've sold more frames if they started putting out these public videos before actually shipping out the frames or during a pre order cycle.... bad business, then again what do you expect from hipsters?

Frameset is nice nonetheless, especially how it pays homage to my one and only bay area/ SF; I won't hesitate buying a used or even new one if the price is right.

i seriously hate that sh!!t. i call it "hollywood-style" fight scenes. I just picture some 90's brah as the cameraman yelling "whooaaaa extreme to the max!!" and ****ing with the zoom while jiggling around, chain wallet clinking in his overly baggy cargo shorts.

i LOVE oldschool kung fu movie style action film camera work. its really still and just follows the action and usually has the figther's full bodies in the shots instead of all zoomed in.

you are right, its mainly to hide ****ty fight scenes. if you watch movies with quality fight scenes you'll notice the camera work is more still and panned out. like the matrix or any tony jaa stuff.

sorry im a kung fu movie nerd lol

I think this commercial started that trend:

i didnt mean the ad was crap, i just meant it didnt effect my opinion of the frames appearance, which i do like.

since we are off topic a bit and talking about adverts and their ability to create an emotional response, even if they arent talking directly about the product or service, here is my submission - fasten your seatbelts

I was expecting the frame to look something like the Cinelli Mash SF monstrosity. Pleasantly surprised, and am not disappoint.

I love mine so far. I havent really got to actually ride it yet but from the short little test ride i did it seemed pretty amazing. Hopefully this weekend i'll have the parts to finish it proper and get a real test ride in.

I like this frame, too. The colors are very pleasing. The frame itself looks like a Motobecane Team Track with a top tube on roids.
