Pretty much the coolest bike part I`ve ever seen.

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)

Pretty much the coolest bike part I`ve ever seen.

The shape reminds me of the jawn i ride on my beater:



Not the most comfortable thing in the world, but total eye candy. I think of it as a chick in four inch pumps-- they're not built for comfort, but are way too sexy to ignore. If she's going to do lots of walking around, she'll wear a stylish pair of flats instead (or, in this case, a selle san marco rever k).

ummmm.....allah? that's, um....wow.

i want a saddle with jesus like that now. if the religious *******s are cool with someone else's deity* having people's asses squirm all over it, they should have theirs given the same treatment.

*though it's forbidden to have images of allah, so who knows what he's actually supposed to look like? anyway, the amount of racism and intolerance toward middle eastern people and muslims in general in this day and age is shocking, whether it's this saddle or jokes about me "looking like a terrorist" because of my beard and dark complexion.

Not only is Allah painted on that seat. Someone even managed to take a picture of him 1500 years ago.



Or not.

WHOA!

My friend just built up his old Fuji as a fixed gear and put on that exact same saddle! They look ridiculous and are uncomfortable as hell. Awesome to look at but I wouldn't want to ride it.

oh geez...

people make fun of jesus, God, and what not every day, ever watched the simpsons, family guy, south park, the daily show, hell, damn near anything on adult swim? people need to pull their panties out of their ass. allah is fair game, just as much as jesus, mohammed, buddah, vishnu, xenu, jehovah, and so on and so on.

yeah racism exists, but religious beliefs have nothing to do with racism. white people can be muslim too, check out jedi mind tricks.

calling someone racist, sexist, homophobic, or what have you is way to easy, we all are in some way or form. Unless you're willing to rip apart your beliefs, don't call names.

sorry to not be posting pictures of ascii lol images, but the blanket statement of "racist" always bums me out.
