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)

I know a lot of you dig this style of stem. Not sure about the quality but Velo Orange is selling these NOS for 75 bones.

.... and some people say they want quill because threadless stems look agricultural or industrial. These look pre-industry and pre-agriculture.
