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)

Didn't Puma try sponsoring messengers at one point? I bet Adidas would throw you something good if they saw your brand loyalty. Designing a bike around a shoe? Come on!

Mine won't be back until friday, but I'm planning to put black dp18s on it with orange-gold hubs and black everything else. On a sort of unrelated note, are the stock wheels on the kilo machined? I was getting ready to sell them off, and I assumed since its a flip flop hub that it is.

stock wheels arent machined but its anodized (silver in color). but a rim being machined has nothing to do with the hub being flipflip or not... any surface can be used as a machined surface~
