Ah, a Brooks saddle! Sweet! I stayed with the stock saddle on my fast bike:

Nope, San Marco Regal. heavy.. but not nearly as heavy as a Brooks would be. Comfy for me.

still pretty sure i'd fall on my face with TT bike.

I want a Cervelo. Or a Pinarello. Too bad the engine would suck.

I will go somewhat old school by posting a picture of my ti Merlin Taiga. This is not as minimal as Eugene's single speed but has a rigid IF front fork, two front chain-rings (46-36) only, an 11-28 rear cog and full XTR component group. For its day it was light, fast and fun to ride.

Merlin Taiga

I would post a picture of my single speed but do not want to depress Eugene or take away from his sweet ride.

Yes, post it Thom. I can handle it. That Merlin is awesome and would still be fast.

btw, good to see your stoic face here, its been a while. Hope you're doing well.

I will roll out my ti Moots Rigormootis this weekend and take a picture. Simply stated the sweetest single speed ever made.

I'm hurt Eugene that you did not see my recent PIF(s)posted in support of the BPL community.

I still ride my 1995 Specialized Stumpjumper M2 FS. I had the original Rock Shox Mag 21 rebuilt a couple of years ago.

:) Our son rides a '94 M2 that was his Mom's racebike. I swapped an R7 onto it rather than rebuild the fork again, changed the saddle and he has no complaints about the full-XTR'd hand-me-down... Mom will repossess it after he grows a few inches.
