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)

Ok. Let's see some British fixed bikes.

too bad i got hit by a car while riding it. but as a testament to why old steel, lugged bikes are the best, its being brought back from the grave. two new tubes, and a dope new paintjob (pearl white with gold undertones) is in the works. already got an identical replacement wheelset, thanks to thisisforever.

A friend of mine said that like 2 years ago, and I'm still trying to figure out why it's so right.

Early 60's Reg Harris. Multiple World Champ on the track he only made bikes for 3 years before going bankrupt. Reynolds 531, Nervex Lugs. I'm selling this complete minus the wheelset for $200, as I need some cash.

Are you kidding me? I like that setup. Just a little black cloth half-wrap on the bars, and some plugs and you're set.

Actually, from the looks of things in that picture, the Dow Corning Corporation would be more to thank than Canada.
