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)

Thanks, it is a fun bike, particularly on smooth roads. I have since changed the handlebars to butterflies (Trekking bars).

Just picked this up from my LBS. Custom built. My first ever full carbon fiber frameset. Rides like a magic carpet. It's not even February yet and my bike budget for the year is blown.

Rebuilt the wheel after messing it up and not noticing that I had. Until spokes started breaking. Also got rid of the white saddle/tape after it got super gross and made me not want to get it dirtier. I ride it more now.
