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)

kogswell model G

does anyone have any secret inside info on the model G? it looks like it's going to be one of the greatest deals out there. for $400, i'll be owning one when they're available.

wahoo. so excited.

i don't know, but luckily i ride a 59, and 58 will work just fine with the right adjustments.

are there any pictures of the frame out there with paint on it? i'm a bit curious about the shade of red, and any detailing they put on.

there's a picture up on the main part of the kogswell site of a painted one. it looks really nice, but i have decided to build a frame instead of buying one this go 'round. that project starts in another paycheck or so.

I almost bought a model F (the creamy colour) but then realized it was a 130 spacing in the back. I was thinking about getting a G but I'm not a fan of the cable stops and such which adorn it.
