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)

Walk into a shop.

Ask "Do you have a black seatpost in 27.0?"

Repeat as necessary.

The keirin ones are hard to find, the non-keirin ones are pretty common.

Yeah i guess its not true. I recently saw a Makino with a full rear triangle that was aero. NJS frame.
Also, my fork is aero and many other are as well. (NJS frame)

sasha has had a number of keirin frames that had aero tubing, and the 3rensho he owns has it also.

as el twe said, thomson makes them. there's really no point in looking any further. in fact, if i score a new frame i'm gonna have the 26.8 thomson elite off my spicer up for sale (unless of course the new frame happens to take a 26.8 but that would just be too perfect wouldn't it?).

haha, whatever frame sasha scores for me!!! I halfway considered the grey & white dqm/t* pista concept up on the wall at the opening tonight but...is for short people...

but yeah when i got my spicer i scoured the interwebz for sexy 26.8's. i had a kalloy laprade as ceya mentioned when i first got it (was running out of budget at the time), but it was klunky, ugly, had a poorly designed clamp, and was HEAVY AS ****! There's not much eye candy in the 26.8 category (ie miche supertype, easton carbon aero ****, etc.), but you can't go wrong with the Thomson. A 27.2 Elite should be about zero problem to get rid of...

I ride an Anchor labled Bridgestone Keirin bike, and I absolutely love it. One of the nicest rides I've ever owned. It takes a 27.0 seatpost, which are hard to find used. You can get new Nitto NJ-SP72 Jaguar seatposts for about $130.

$130? What a steal.
