Steel, seen at Interbike '07

This Ritchey Breakaway singlespeed/fixed gear frame is a new model for 2008.
Geometry is similar to the Breakaway road frame but with a higher bottom bracket for fixed gear pedal clearance.
I think there will be one of these in my fleet before too long.

Something similar from Kirk Pacenti. This was used as a showcase for Cane Creek's range of fixed gear wheels.
A demountable fixie could be the ideal non-touring travel bike, but these deep section carbon wheels might not be ideal for urban pothole dodging.

Rawlands Cycles 650b bikes with Pacenti's new fork crown, and (right) the Pacenti 650b aka 27.5" Neo Moto MTB tyre.

Makino road fixed gear on the Euro-Asia stand.
Eura-Asia always has some high-end Japanese steel goodness on display.
They also had some new leather saddles from Gilles Berthoud.

The Tom Ritchey designed Coffee Bike for Project Rwanda. You can see it in action in this video.

This Pegoretti Luigino was on the Brooks stand. I have never seen a Luigino with these Prugnat lugs before.

For 2008 Brooks is introducing a messenger bag, plus a more affordable, steel railed version of my favourite saddle, the Swallow.

This stunning town bike from Northern Californian geniuses Sycip was on the Shimano stand promoting their Alfine group.
