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'd consider buying one.

I mean it takes considerably more skill to properly butcher a $70 leather saddle than it does to take a hacksaw to a set of $5 bars.
I've seen pictures of your saddles, they look sweet.

It's amazing how a brushing wheel can hide the hacksaw marks and remove old tape scum.

Yeah, kind of silly. Shows how many clueless people are out there (I'm sure I'm clueless compared to many.). At least you get a stem with it.
