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)

Pretty nice roadbike inspired SS

I'm a roadie and appreciate the cleanness of this bike, it's a bit spendy for what you get and i'm sure you can replicate something like this for much much less. German made...

they're using a 32mm wheel, can someone steer me to where i might find something similar?

Haha I can't believe that company name. Yikes.

It looks nice, but like you said it's pretty darn expensive for what it is.

It looks like a cool bike, but yeah the name is pretty ------ed. No way I'd pay $2000 for it. Especially since the wheelset is from the same company as the bike, so basically no-name.

it's from the fatherland LOL of course that name is like that...or did they think it was cool in engrish?

but i'd like to find that wheelset even though it's all black ano i'm sure braking will eventually wear it off but aesthetically i like.
