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)

compromise for the s&s coupler, I'm sure. Plus, it's not a racing bike, you could just stop if you are jonesing for a swig that bad. Notice the titanium spork headtube mount. Too damn cool.

While I commend the talent and skill that went into that touring bike it's just way too much for me.

It is a large frame though. Retroshifters ruin the porn

Look even closer - a big pile of cash you're not going to use because they're too rare/ expensive to risk with riding on.

I thought the frameset didn't count as porn and just the wheels did.

I mean the owner had the frame colored in the same shade of blue as the campy stickers on the wheels. Nonetheless, that set of wheels is worth 2x+ the frameset.

Really wondering how much the charity auction will fetch for that^ @ sothebys. It's for a good cause.
