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)

611 makes lots of pretty things, including the intigrated ergo bars that were a prize at one of the Velocity races.

Very similar to what I am doing with my Kilo (well, besides the kevlar belt, and the S&S couplers, and the Brooks, and the brakes, and the...)

Personally I prefer 7-11.
But seriously, that's a classy looking bike. Not sure if I love or hate the belt drive...Interesting at least...[Edit] Or that stem/bar concoction...I think I'm leaning more on dislike for that part...

Yeah, I wasn't sure how I felt about the belt drive at first, but I decided I really like it, along with the stem/bar thing. Together, the whole bike seems kind of space age/classic/space age, which I think I'm in love with.

those bullmoose meet titec h-bars are nifty.

I got H-bars on my Jabberwocky SS and love 'em.

Belt drive seems out of place to me, it's a classic looking bike,lugged steel and all
and then you have a belt slapping you in the eye.
Call me a retrogrouch but chains is just fine for me- plus you ain't gotta bust one of your seatstay's to put "belt" on.
