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)

I like the fact that it's not an overdone "all black bike". The headset, seatpost, and cranks provide a nice break.

The PBR can's a nice touch too.

I almost bought that wheelset. Are they true? If so, that was a stellar deal.

Did it sell for what you were asking? I saw it on CL. I was envious.

I think the wheel is stiffer, less power is lost to flex.
