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)

How can you wait such a long time before your LOW bike is being made and not take your spare time reading about proper bike fit.
That Thomson clamp must be face palming all day long.

Yeah, that's drum. Would it surprise anyone to know that the frameset was homemade?

I wanna see him riding that Cipollini, it might start making sense then ... if he's proportioned like a gorilla.

And what's it going to handle like? Surely it'd have quick steering to start with, then add no neck and stubby bars. Hmm, no foot retension then full blat down a steep hill, with that steering and gearing, brakes'd never be an issue, you'd be in the bushes before brakes became a consideration.

I don't see the problem. It's a Zipper faring, built, and correctly installed, for this use. Maybe I'm missing something in the shadow?
