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)

it's not fixed but it's FUNNY! ~ AARON KARO

Yeah, it's Friday so let's have some fun. I'm not sure how many people subscribe to Aaron Karo's "Ruminations" columns.

If not you should!

Here's his latest: http://www.aaronkaro.com/issue.php?id=47

He mentions track bikes in this one. In the fine print. Look closer.

Wait, i just read it again...I see it now. It mentions the intern track bike thing. Like it's cool now or something. Thanks Raygunner for the content that is relevant and pertinent to this forum.

Read it through once and must have missed it. It's about 100 degrees up in my alcove/attic where my computer is at so not reading twice. Great article by the way. Witty muh'fu**a that Aaron.
