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)

It would also be mildly amusing to market and/or troll Electra owners with that seat post.

I get the impression 90% of them would have no idea you removed all of the special crank forward technology.

ETA. Major Taylor stems look so cool. Probably a reason I don’t see them in real life, but they’re very interesting.
