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)

Beauty! Noni's are so nice. I'd be interested in hear feedback about their alum. pista frames. How's it ride? Stiff?

Wow that's a nice one. Coulda sworn that looked like Toronto's lakeshore. Guess I shoulda read your location first. Great rides everyone....... Wish I woulda found this forum a little earlier.

I'm still hiding my new one from the girlfriend. Have to break the news to her gently somehow. Slowly waiting for a couple more parts to trickle in from the bay for a quick midnight basement build. The deal was she gets an engagement ring and I get a new fixie. She was gonna get the ring anyways, so now I get something out of the deal....works out perfectly. She gets the ring Thursday and then my bike comes out of hiding. Hopefully the weather on the weekend will be great for a rip or two.

Keep posting guys this forum is great.

Yeah that Marinoni looks nice. The only thing that bothers me is why did the put emphasis on the M on Marinoni and P in Pista? The designer in me wants there to be a reason, some type of connection, however I fear there is no rationale.

Nice bike none the less, looks like fun to ride! I think I want my next bike to be a green similar to yours.

Hokay, new bike this weekend. Bought the whole bike as is then replaced the wheels, brake levers, pedals, and chainring with my own. It was cheaper this way! It's a flipflop fixie/free wheel, but I only ride free. Coasting makes me happy, not coasting makes me sad.

I think it's because it's going for the tricolore look, italian colors?

Nevermind, they have red highlighted on all their colors. Plus they're canadian aren't they?

OK that didn't work. I posted pics on flicker. Right clicked on image and copied link location then clicked on picture icon here and pasted the link. Nothing happened.
What did I do wrong? I know this has to be easier than it appears.
