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)

If You Could Have the SSFG Bike of Your Choosing, What Would it Be?

I figured this would be a fun thread to try. I saw something similar in the *gasp* road forum and it was well received.

So, assuming money isn't an issue, what would be your desired SS/FG bike? This isn't intended to be a "Bike Porn" copy, so tell us what you would choose. Also, I'd prefer if we left all geared bike stuff to the other subforums, thank you very much.

Not exact specs, but who doesn't like pictures? (Not mine):

Money not an issue?

Custom. Tiemeyers are hot, but maybe I want steel. Waterford or a custom 65er

I don't necessarily want the cinelli, just a build like that.

Thank you for that but aluminum frame, carbon fork, and sloping top tube....eeeeek!

This falls way short but at least it has the "fixie" look.

There are quite a few of us (me included) whose tastes are not Carleton-approved.

Still haven't made my decision on this yet...

so completely wrong. the GC jersey should be retired and hanging in the rafters, not doing the washed-up celeb reunion tour.
