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)

You guys have lost it. That actually looks like a bike made for riding in the streets (as much as a pursuit frame can be at least)

in that case, cutting off at the tops and having the most unique and recognisable cutoff flat bar ever is fine.

well, lets say that's what's going on here. it may be allowable then

but cutting a notch in the bar near the center where leverage will **** it over to run your awesome cross lever is just as jackass. you'll be left with a right hand full of broken carbon fiber and no teeth.

not awesome.

oh and only thing that really bothers me with that GT (brooks is kinda getting me, and killing geo with a front 700) is the wrong side drive install. why?

How does one think putting $2200 into a Kilo TT is a good idea? He would've had to been taken to the cleaner by someone.

Those components don't add up to 2200. He thinks an aerojoke wheel and a deep v will sell this ride.
