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)

they're right around 53 cm center to center. i don't know as if i could ever rock these things- i just wanted to see what they'd look like. drops are a bit more my style. check this fellow's setup (picture compliments of old skool track)...

Are you sure it wasn't "bad ****"? or maybe "bad ****"? I mean, there's no way to tell.
