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 haven't heard anything about the frames but I do like the way it looks, the cut out is cool even though it is a heart....

Definitely low quality. Don't get me wrong I like triple triangle, curved seat tube, bb cutout and the like but it doesn't 'look' fast

Then again it might be the perfect bike for you, if you have to ask..

These junior companies, like RH+O, should follow in Leader's footsteps so we can have a bunch of crappy stylized track frames on the market

you know what? I'm getting sick of being completely out of control on my bike when I go fast. I'm buying one.. "bulit" for speed.

The frame looks cool but it's probably really overpriced.

L size : C2C 54cm ,T2C 55cm.

wait, what?

The concept is cool, but found some built up pictures, and it doesn't do it for me.

Apparently on the home page, they're appealing to fast riders with broken legs

You can totally mash with a cast on your leg with this frame!

I don't think enough drugs exist to make me buy one of those. There are soooooo many better choices. And blatant spelling errors on the website? Amateurs.
