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'm now in love with the Leggendas. If $ wasn't an option though I think I'd fly to Australia and get a Baum fitted

Judging my that pic, the "****ty" welds on a LOW don't look much different to me than those found on a MASH. If anything, they're smoother.

Have you been to a mall lately? Females that look like this tend to congregate there*. Check the foodcourt.

And to bring it back on topic, much like aluminum, the ride might feel great at first but subsequently become irritating.

*Local statutory laws may apply. See package for details.

yeah they're pretty similar, but massan's color choice really made it stand out.

I don't know if I'd go as far to say they're smoother

Good thread, glad I found it. Doing research on pretty much this exact topic.

But, every time i see the name Wabi, i can't help but think of that new song that goes "wabodi wabodi wab"

Still riding the Vilano steel frame SS/FG. Can't beat steel for longevity, things fall over, others get touchy/feely with your property. Even the LBS work stand can put a scratch or gouge into softer frame material. I guess I'll be riding the Vilano 20 years from now too. It's a bike, I buy one and figure it should last a lifetime, harder steel gives me that best shot at a lifetime of ownership ? 2 years old at the end of May. It rides as smooth and quiet as any of them, especially since they repaved the street I always have to start my ride on, after that road conditions are bound to degrade.

sweet mother of... i want that frame. I used to have a steel ciocc I crashed last year and it rode amazingly (older). His modern designs are incredible.

That's a lot of choices for a 1000USD frame, hell a OTP Mash Histogram is nearly that. Of course is still a lot for a frame but not mad expensive like some custom made frames out there.
I'm so glad I read this... Going to email them now.
