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)

Just moved closer to work so I dusted off the old bike and have been cycling to work for the past three months. Bought some nice upgrades along the way. Super happy with it.

Miche Supertype. Love the little mm tickmarks on the side of the post, makes it easy to do adjustments to height without guessing

Has anyone installed a Sunlite Pillar Suspension Seat Post on their Windsor? If so, how much has it improved the ride?

I doubt it, does it really ride that bad?

Nah...I"m getting used to it. In fact I kinda like the stiffness of the 95+psi ride. I did, however, get a pinch flat doing a bad version of a bunny hop over a pothole the other day.
