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)

One of the coolest shops in London. These are great china frames built with Columbus tubing but I don't think it's worth it to import from the UK, something like a Colossi is equally good and cheaper in the US

I'm fairly certain Tokyo Fixed frames are made by Colossi.

Like Maxway, Colossi mainly produces frames for other companies.

You'd most likely be better off asking Colossi that question directly.

Am I understanding this right? There is a British company with the name of the capital of Japan in it, selling bike frames from an American company with an Italian sounding name that are built in China?

Colossi isn't an American company.
