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)

Are any of you in art school?

i'm curious what percentage of the people who say yes to this also have an NJS frame.

please include your NJS frame ownership status with the answer to his question.

I'm sort of in art school - if you consider music to be art. I definitely don't have an NJS frame, though.

in art school. and i hate anything njs. its over the top and uneeded. besides.....art school has taught me the virtues of DIY culture if anything so that means function over form. that means using the spray booths and HVLP guns to crank out a nice frame.....that even means debating the ownership of a formula/nashbar hub over a paul/phil woods hub(yer not going to the track....and you dont belong to the actual 10% of riders who NEED anything of that calibre)

I graduated last summer from RISD and I have an old british track frame, the only NJS components on my bike are the toe straps, clips, and chain tensioners.

I was in Art school and have 10 NJS frames /bikes.

S/F,
CEYA!

NJS: Nihon Jitensha Shinkokai. They promote Japanese keirin cycling organization as well as set the standards which makes a bike/frame/parts certified to be ridden in Keirin races.

no NJS. the only other fixed gear bikes around here are a pista and a langster that I think belong to engineering students.

I was an art student for a couple years, then switched to pharmacy. I realized that I liked money.
Never really rode during the art days though.

I'm studying graphic design at Oregon State. I don't know what NJS is, and I am too lazy right now to find out.
