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)

My fun bike.




edit: and yes, I also hate the way the rear tire looks. I just like gatorskins too much even if it hurts the aesthetic I was going for...

I dont think Cannondale ever made steel, and they only just started making full carbon. It's Al.

its def stiff but def isn't as light as it could be. the Brooks, deep V, and A-spoke make it much heavier. I am planning on putting some Open Pros on it lighten it up. but I can't ditch the Brooks. Just an amazing saddle even if it is heavy as led

head tube is 45 degrees, rake is 108mm. rides like a chopper. i'm thinking of putting apehangers and a banana seat on it.
