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)

Need some help figuring out what this badge is..

There is a Single Speed for sale around my work, its a white frame, only marking on it is on the head tube.. and its a gold "B" does anyone have any idea what this might be??? I believe the gold "B" is set on a star type pattern.

Will try and post pictures later on today, but was just wondering if someone can tell me what it is real quick, otherwise Ill wait to until I post a picture.

I saw this guy walking around one day down near Fisherman's Wharf last time I was in SF. He was over by Ripley's Believe It Or Not (I was headed to In-N-Out Burger but that's not important) and he was wearing a jacket and running shoes. Does anyone know who he is?

come on now, a little credit here, i gave a pretty good description, the letter "B" in gold, placed on top of a star, and its a badge, not a sticker.


if i said, i saw a badge on a bike and wanted to know what it was, that would be more like your question.

No, I need to know what you ordered. Only then can I tell you what you wish to know.

You are confusing sponsor with advertiser.

i guess it would depend on how the forum structure works. on some sites if an advertiser takes the lead banner for a specific forum then they are the forum sponsor.

but like others said, feedback equals better quality...one would hope

That's a Squirrelli bike; good, solid, Italian-esque bike.
