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?

I have the same feelings regarding that frame. I definitely love the frame, but the paint job is meh.

I ride so fast that I ignite the air, so I am always surrounded by flames as it is.

Not exactly FG Tarck Jack Ass, but does this guy seriously think someone will trade a Hed3 front wheel for an Aerospoke rear????

Yeah. Maybe get it repainted with an old-fashioned hot-rod paintjob, scallops and pinstriping with candy-coat over metalflake, heh.

Plaid is the new black, after all.

If you look really close that's actually an aero seat post he's got on that bike. Might not be a carbon post and he had to raise it a bit so the round tube is showing but that is in fact an aero seatpost you say his bike lacks.

Thank you. There is nothing jackass about this bike. I'd bet a flat that that dude - or whoever's riding that bike - would ride circles around 99% of the folks on BFSSFG at the velodrome. You don't put that much attention to detail into a bike without knowing exactly what you're doing.

I am getting a new bike (Masi Speciale Ltd) on Sunday and am getting a set of Spinergy RevX's (front and rear to double the risk of death) in a week. As soon as it's all up together I will be sure to post it here.

So Basically, imagine this,



with another death wheel on the back like this.



Hopefully it will be worthy of this thread. What do you think?

Every time I see a bike like this, I think of a balls-to-stem skid attempt gone wrong (not straps) and those chopped, uncapped bars taking a nice core-sample of the lower abdomen.

Sorry if this a repost then.

Core sample!!! That's gold. I especially like that the clips are plastic for maximum flexibility. Just what one needs of foot retention.
