    I think it's pretty neat, but won't be as popular as velospace/FGG because it doesn't allow us to indulge in our personalized vanity. It's just about useful old bikes.Think you're escaping and run into yourself. Longest way round is the shortest way home.

    i really want to like old ten speeds, but i hate the look of the chainring guards and the brake hoods/levers. everything else about them is so classy.Geryon was a monster everything about him was red.

    ^Also, stem shifters are gross. Downtubes yes. Stem no.

    I actually think the "suicide brake levers" look kinda classy in their own way.Think you're escaping and run into yourself. Longest way round is the shortest way home.

    there is a bike co-op in cleveland that had a sign that said "no women's 10 speeds!" they already had a warehouse full of 'em. i always wonder why they don't sell it as scrap steel.

    i love sheldon brown's quote about stem shifters:
    "Stem shifters also present a danger in a collision. Depending on what gear you have selected, stem shifters can be like having a dull knife aimed at your groin!"what does he commute to clowntown on that thing
