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 am not sure if I would resort to violence in response to said "thumbs up" however I can imagine my face contorting to a very confused expression.

I see bikes used all the time in car and truck ads. Usually to subliminally put out the message that bikes are for 'recreation' and motor vehicles are for 'transportation'.

I don't know what to say about that ad. Incredibly weird. So weird it's hard to believe it's real. It clearly is real, but just what is their target market?
