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)

Funky GB stem

I picked up this crazy , lugged stem at a swap meet. The chrome was peeling, so I blasted it off and painted it ( w/ a tiny, silverleaf star ). It reminds me of something...........................
