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)

mmmm.... naked bars and bare hands

when you say that we should post pics of our rides, it implies that there is not a sticky thread just for that.

I'll play.
Here's a couple of me dorking around at the velodrome last sunday.
I've got a good one of [165] in a kilt and wifebeater, but I'll do him a favor and won't post it.
