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)

Oof. Would be all over one of those if they had a size smaller.

I want one in 54 =[

(SIDE NOTE) Anyone know how the durability of GT's track bikes is as compared to that of their BMX bikes? I've got a 10-year-old Interceptor that I still beat around on, and it handles abuse like a champ. I've been considering picking up a Gutterball as a replacement for my beat-to-hell Premium Brew frame.

Dibs

Called john at the DLV earlier today to get dibs on the 58cm-- hopefully I'll be picking it up on tuesday when he gets back in town.
That is... if i can find a ride down to college park.

Im excited!

If I remember correctly GT has changed hands a few times recently. Therefore, I wouldn't expect any correlation in quality between a new GT and an older one.

I emailed him the day this post went up about the 56, and have yet to receive a reply. I check back, and what do you know, it's sold.

Disappointing.
