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)

Tight Bikes!

there have been threads asking people to post their japanese bikes, italian bikes, english bikes, french bikes, and others. sadly i don't own one, but am a huge fan of tight ss/fg bikes.

so... begin!

have some of the tightest tire clearances i've seen. neither is mine, though someone on this board own(ed) that de rosa before it was ruthlessly stolen.

that bike, i find very aesthetically pleasing; the fork/stem/handlebar combo is amazing. but in general, the GT seat stays perplex me (not sure as to whether i like or don't like them)
