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)

It's pretty silly, but I WANT a leather wrapped bike. I often think that everything I touch should be leather.

I'd probably not go yellow, though.

Who's hip to Ltd. Edition jargon? What do AP and PP stand for? Artist Proof? and umm, P___ Proof. Maybe Artist Prototype and P___ Prototype????

Oh, and I can't hang with the saddle. I'd have to have 'em recover a Charge Spoon or SDG Belair.

^ You are a rarity my friend, for some reason at my work the yellow of everything is always left over I.E. yellow sharpies are always the last to go, if they even do.

Props to you!

I was going to mention that but... why didn't they edit out the brooklyn and sugino logos (on the 75's) then? At least you would want people to know what they're buying when they plan to drop the amount of a economical sedan for one... They don't mention the parts specs anyway.... I just recognized the parts from ownership.

Is it jackass for a 6'5" rider to use 165mm cranks? If it is then I'l post my bike now that I've changed the cranks

Looks like that's one guy who could use a leader top tube. He must have monkey arms. Although to be fair, if those parts were intentionally chosen, it would seem he got a proper fit at the expense of looking right, and that is never jackass.

The most jackass-y thing about this ad is calling it a "track bike" imo, though cutting up that poor helpless Brooks saddle is pretty cruel too (or are there Brooks that are sold that way?). What's a used Spinergy wheel worth these days btw?
