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 want to see more too. I was in NYC, but I missed it cause I was bikeless and clueless as to how to get there otherwise....

I heard it described as " a show, without all the sucky bands."

Here's some pics that my wifey took. A great day of racing. Two crashes, one sending a Team Puma guy to the hospital with a broken collar bone. Ouch.

Here are a few flicks I pulled out while wading through hundreds of photos from Saturday. I'll update this once I post better ones on my website.

All in all, it was a great day. Thanks to everyone organizing and racing.

lycra on city streets is bogus. on the velodrome, seems pretty logical.

Cool stuff. I grew up in Queens and rode my old Raleigh three speed in that park. Fond memories. Is there a website that lists the events? My sister lives close and it would be a treat for me to attend an event.
Thanks in advance....

great day! thanks so much for putting this on. me and my girlfriend had a great time and all in all it was totally inspiring. my only complaint - lame puma rep with the hummer was stingy with the schwag and wasn't very nice about it either. but i shouldn't complain about such a fun event!
