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)

x 6500 or so.

Rather have the paper clips than the Kilo TTs or the shoes.

Although, $13,000 could buy me my:

with some gas money.

Regardless, a bike with Sugino RD2 cranks is definitely not porn.

Just because she's skinny doesn't mean she's hot. That felt is pretty damn clashy. And no, that's not Sean Connery's way of saying classy.

12 lbs and it has cheap Well-go track pedals that someone took the strap/cages off of but left the reflectors on?

Not porn.

The foreskin bar end tape job is a nice touch too.

bar end plugs weigh 14g a pair. It's all that little stuff that adds up bro.

...and yes, I just weighed a plug.
