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)

at first i thought those capo's were kind of tacky looking, but they're growing on me. looks real nice robotkiller. unfortunately it's not a 90's blue cannondale track with a threaded headset, i really want one of those.

What a weird thing to say

[lol]

The Ventana is pretty killer; I'll be honest. It's the same weight as the capo. Absolutely flies on singletrack - probably the best bike I've ever ridden.

Probably because the Capo is like $250 more expensive.

I've always thought it's weird that people get accused of not riding when they take care of their stuff.

In case you are serious, I commute with the capo every day and I ride the Ventana every weekend. It's surprisingly hard to get a bike filthy enough to show on camera when you ride on dry, dusty trails or on the road.

I keep my bikes in very good condition, but its nearly impossible to keep them mint unless you make a full time job out of cleaning it, or you never ride. Most people just take pictures when their bike is new and keep posting them over and over. In reality, used bikes are dirty, at least a little.

tough crowd...

proof of dirt


Sorry fellas. Best I could find.

I don't know why my bikes stay so clean. I wish they wouldn't so I could be hardcore.

I weigh 170.

The cranks are White Industries ENO with a 32T chainring. I like them alot -- really stiff, but reasonably light and b/c there are no chainring bolts, it's creak free. WI customer service is also as good as it gets.

Thanks: one piece chang ring now on my list. I'm building a SS 29er (frame is on my blog), and now finding out what I need to buy, what works, what might not.
