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)

this is ridiculous but its the most pertinent pic I could find. I know there is a bamboo thread in the mechanics subforum, but does anyone know about possibilities for performance with this material. Ive read articles about how they teach people in third-world countries to build frames from wood and bamboo for utilitarian use....but how about the velodrome?

The fork is great first time using carbon.

An old desk & little peg board go a long way.

The hoola hoop is toast but my shorties still play with it!

Thanks, yes they are the Nitto RB-021 I like em.

& yes itís on the wall.

from a color standpoint, it's aesthetically flawless.

if you want to say that deep V's shouldn't go on something with leather on it, that's another kind of aesthetic, a design cohesion aesthetic... and sure, it has stuff that would look at home on a 50's bike and a few other components(the wheels, mainly) that would also look at home on a concept with lasers and diamond bling on it...

but that point is ridiculous because WHEELS ARE WHEELS. they haven't changed significantly enough in design (at least not those wheels) since the 50s to break the cohesive design.

if it had aerospokes or heds or carbon rims then maybe you'd have a point... but right now you're just making an ass out of yourself. cmon man. show some taste. especially when you're taking on one of the most classy, tasteful bikes posted in the last year.
cc700 - I couldn't have put it better myself. Your intelligence is much appreciated!

shapelike - I'm sorry you feel the need to blatantly mock others. I'm sure it's just your self conscious compensating for something your lacking in. But that's okay man, we're all guilty of it now and then. Just know that if you're going to pull the whole 'condescending prick' thing, it helps to have what it takes to back it up...
