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)

Update number 2 - They've got some more - price is still $169.95

Well, I just checked back, and BD has some more Windsor Clockworks for the same $169.95 clearance price. These are the straight black color ones, not the blackberry that I got, and they are available in 43cm, 49cm and 61cm sizes. Note that the top tubes are quite long on these, so they will fit taller people than normal for a given size. For example, the TT length is 539mm on the 49cm size, so it is equivalent to a 52cm Motobecane Messenger.

The weird thing is, as you get bigger in size, the TT is proportionally shorter. I've been sending this link out to my shorter friends.
