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 isn't ugly for sure but it isn't so much porn more like a bra catalog or something.

Plus they can't even take a proper photo look at the wheels and how bad they are: Valve cap on the back (nothing at the front) and rotated differently.

If that's the stock build (the All-City), it's the nicest I can recall seeing from anyone.

Piling it on for the Big Block.

Love all the chrome and the green flake. Really can't beat the clearance for 32s too.

Brakeless with slick 32s and flat bars would be a blast for around town and the occasional dirt drop.

Really need All City to stop making bikes I want.

Why would you add that mount when the handlebar is sitting right there? Not enough room on the bar? Looks super dorky without a light mounted on there.

Integrated seat masts are really, really stupid, but also really cool .

My daily driver has one (splurge purchase) and it has 3 (??) cm of adjustment - which is plenty as long as you don't plan on lending it to anyone that doesn't have the same inseam. It was a splurge purchase and I probably won't due it again due as it offers no advantages over a traditional seat post other than looking neat.

I don't know. Reminds me of Evil Knievel.

The light mount is in an odd place especially for an off road bike and looks like a serious laceration waiting to happen. The only way to make it worse would be to sharpen it and point it at the riders scrotum.

It looks like a blast to ride though. I'd beat the crap out of it.

The past few pages had maybe one porn pic.

Gaudy colors on a Specialized is an advertisement, not porn.

All City? I really don't understand the allure. Maybe someone can tell me why people like them so much. I'm not trying to insult anyone and sincerely don't understand. I thought they were a mid-level brand. Am I wrong?

The Speedvagen and Vanilla bikes look to me like Tuesday night dates. Riding them might change my mind and I'm open to an invite.

That multicolored Bishop on the other hand, is really sweet. The all black components are so hot and the black stem is just over the top. I never heard of Force/Attack matched tire sets. My Bianchi wants to mate with that bike. I'm going to post it again just because.

Closed it down and deleted a bunch of crap. Please keep Politics and Religion out of the general forums. There is a separate private P&R subforum where these discussions are allowed. If you wish to have access to it, just PM me.

@JagR if you have a problem with what some one posts, I invite you to use the report post feature and let the moderator staff deal with it. By attempting to argue about it here, you created a bunch of work for the volunteer staff, and by the volunteer staff, I mean me. Thanks.

Agreed. Let's keep it on topic folks.
