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)

What the heck is this?

Just aquired a fixie from my brother in law and am curious as to the bike's origins. It's just a nondescript chromoly fixie and is most likely a generic taiwanese job but maybe you guys can confirm this. S/N begins with a U downtube is ovalized, I want to say he said it was 60cm.

Thanks!

"Kilo TT" on the saddle is the first clue.
