Pista Concept/Super Pista Photo Superthread

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)

Maybe a little IF you also drill a hole at the end of the crack to keep it from propagating.

I would say pipe clamps are only effective on a perfectly circular surface which the pista concept's seat tube isn't...
