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)

I brought my fixed gear to the jam session. The jam session was excellent.

I can't tell what's happening, did he try to take a flaming shot which didn't extinguish in his mouth? It's kind of hypnotizing to watch.

Flaming shot which he didn't extinguish (duh) or shoot properly. So he spilled flaming booze down his chin and front. Hilarity ensues.

Longer movie with the not-so-horrible aftermath and a soundtrack to boot: http://uselessjunk.com/modules.php?n...ticle&sid=1324
