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)

Post it somewhere else, like pedal room and then when you link it unclick the "retrieve remote file" box.

^^^ Nysss - the chrome tips & stays almost make the unicrown fork tolerable

Going back a couple years that model was on closeout for unbelievably low price at several interwebz sellers & I really wanted one, but none ever had my size.

Iamsam,
I hear you loud and clear on the Unicrown fork..... LOL, I let it slide because it's not a lugged frame. Thank you, yeah this is my favorite welded Pista frame.
