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)

Except specialized doesn't stand behind their retailers. They step on them.

So now I will have to either wait or buy a different brand.


Also wanted to get my CAAD10 fitted but I don't feel like spending $200 on a fit from my LBS.
Maybe a middleman here in the socal/ LA area can help....

This would be valid but I'm trying to buy from one of their retailers and have it shipped to me, much like Specialized would if I ordered off their website. I can understand if they were undercutting the price of the LBS but they're not.

Why'd it suck?

I saw one up close for the first time last weekend, it looks surprisingly okay. It was the limited edition Wutang bike.

Anyone willing to pick up a helmet from CityGrounds in CA and ship it to me? No place local to me has it and Specialized is OOS till July. Specialized products can't be shipped by distributors due to Specialized rules.

Today I averaged over 20 miles each day for the last 4 days. Not much, but my work schedule is always pretty intense, so I'll take it.

Today I worked on a custom touring rack... a few little adjustments, a little more torch work, and polishing, and then it's paint time.

There are more brazed joints in this than there are in a bicycle...
