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)

Steel. I had an 80s Schwinn Madison, a Falcon road bike(fg), a Pinarello, and one of the *** metal grey Bianchi pistas...all fg. Always bullhorn. My favorite cranks back then we're those Doteks you could get from danscomp, any length, any chaining you wanted. They weren't pretty, but they were cheap and lasted long. 12$ GT bmx platform pedals with the reflectors popped off to take toe clips. That was my "set up" for dealing with Cleveland's awful weather, and worse roads for quite a few years.

Yeah I really liked that bike. It was the only brand new, off the shelf bike I've ever bought. It was a great ride for work/city.

Awesome man, that Madison was probably a sick looking bike. I love the older Madisons, I would definitely go with steel for working as a messenger too Rode an older Leader 735tr for a little while, was nice but not for me.

Why do you keep posting POS bikes? Post them in the jackass thread. I thought this thread was for bikes that are on CL worth snatching up not throwing up.

I actually really like that Gitane. Bonus is that the universal brake comes with the original gum hood and adjuster (even though they are kind of roached). I had to replace my Bianchi's Universal brake levers with cheapo Cane Creek hoods until a reasonably priced set comes up on FeeBay.

It's a tri bike, so seller is definitely 100% serious about everything.
