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)

That last one could use foot retention and that gear ratio looks low to me, but it's still a sick bike and a cool wheelset!

That's the Colnago Super, right? It looks great but I feel like Colnago just got a $500 bike and put their name on it.

That Merckx is pretty meh, and mixing those major taylors with a technomic is like risers on jaguars.

I love the simplicity of Sögreni bikes. Go Danes.

It does look like a Super, but the crank is different. Not sure what they changed.
