Yeah, I saw that too. I don't need another single speed, but that looks tempting. Luckily for me, I won't fit those two sizes, somewhere in the middle be bout right.

Lessee . . . a bike with no gears or suspension for over $500. That's a bargain?

did you look at anything besides no gears and suspension? what an effing dumbass. The only rigid single speed for less is a monocog.

it does to have gears..one, thats all you need. kinda like cock pushups.

Whoa big fella! Lighten up; I was pullin' his leg.

Yes I did look. It's got the Bianci panache and a nice parts spec. Yaddayaddayadda. To be honest, I guess I just don't get the gushing about rigid singlespeeds. My first bike 40 years ago was a rigid singlespeed. I'm glad for the changes time has brought.

I own a SISS with considerable upgrades. Go for it - you won't regret it for a second.

Nice bike...but $500. for a single speed with cro-mo fork? I have seen some very nice builds/conversions done on older Rockhoppers, etc., that come in at half that amount. Would this be used on trails or urban/street riding?

Either.

If this bike came in Celeste, it would be sex on wheels.
