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)

SS Seats

How are seats for SSs different from seats for Fixies? And, while I am here, can anyone recommend a high quality Fixie or SS for under $200. Will it have a nice seat? And, is there any reason to buy a WI cog, they are more expensive, you know...

















Shows each day at 8, 9, and 10....

I'm going to a see movie tonight at the new theater in town. I hope there are nice cup holders on the saddles.

Me too. Had a nice ride this morning, now the wife and I are going to see Train Wreck. It would be awesome if they had cool saddles there!

Saddles at my closest independent theater are complete ass hatchets.

I'm just hoping Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No is as good as the first two.
