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)

Wonderful sleuthing, but my question was where are people SEEING these colors. Vocaltest said "these colors sux," as if he had seen them. There are lots of shades of white, green and orange...

Well, I wasn't trying to talk crap or anything anyway. But you make a good point all the same.

I'm actually looking forward to an orange frame.

i really like the feel of the what, 69 gear inches i have now, learning how to spin fast, no problem keeping up with anyone i ride with,
