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)

Other than that they are determined, enthusiastic and joyful bikers? And that they eschew the serial comma?

not me.

Not sure. I am surprised no one has found out their name yet. Not much info on them.

Unknown started off making ****ty aluminum frames that were on par with Visp. They have undoubtedly gotten better over the past couple of years but I'd still rather ride a Leader if I were looking for a frame with big gnarly aero tubing.

The 2013 models should be available in the US in a couple of weeks.
