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 was browsing their site a while ago, cause I was curious on the price. Seen the tandems and just accepted it... lol

and regarding the price of the Tiemeyer Signatures... I was amazed with how reasonable.
