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)

What make frame is this?

Hey guys, new to the forums and about 9 months into my first single speed. Been really enjoying the single speed vs any other bike I've owned. The simplicity of the bike lets you really understand (and respect) the terrain of the trails you ride. I find that the trails I used to shift around on are much more enjoyable now that I have to work for every pedal.

Anyway - I got my bike used and have no idea what make bike I am riding so I was wanting to post on here and see if someone recognizes it? Could be a junker but I love it, so if you know what it is please let me know 😛

Definitely rusted but no cracks. I'll be sure to check it often though because I am a big guy. It does have a couple dents on the top tube but they haven't grown in the 9 months I've had it.

So far it's held up to what ever I've thrown at it. #sqaudTT
