You are witnessing the effects of being unemployed and bored.

Now on the shelves. But not for long I reckon.
Our ISO track hub is now available! The front hub has a larger flange than our high-flange track hub, and the rear has 120mm spacing and in 32 or 36 spoke hole configurations. Provided with the rear hub are six Phil Cog retention bolts. They are Grade 8/Class 8.9 with a minimum tensile strength of 150,000 psi.
The hub is offered in a single-fixed, double-fixed, fixed-freewheel, and fixed-freewheel (White Industries freewheel-specific) configuration. Cogs are available only in 1/8″ and in 16-19 teeth. We strongly recommend using Phil ISO track cogs with our bolts due to bolt fitment.
These are currently not listed in our web store.
Please call us at (408) 298-1540 to order.

We met some real cool guys too, we pretty much just shouted "Fixie" (lame I know) at any riders we saw but it worked everytime, apart from the dude who sprinted off when we shouted it. Apologies to the guys we met (guy on the Merican, guy on the yellow track frame and single speed dude) as I cannot remember any of their names. Apart from being branded Fakengers by some stuck up hipsters on the champs elysee, everyone we met was nice.
Sadly we couldn't find Cyclope and when we finally found out where it is, it was sunday and it was shut. But we know where it is now for next time, which will hopefully be very soon.
Sam posted the best of the pictures, but heres some more anyway.
Nicely made short video that includes some nice track bikes. Not sure what it's about and if the dude getting dressed has anything to do with anything but whatever - i sometimes forget the fact that FixedGear/TrackBikes and everything thus associated is cool as fuck so videos like this are bound to end up being made. I don't have an issue with it as in general, any hype a scene driven sport gets usually rewards those who pushed it first (mash etc.). Plus it sounds and looks good.
