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)

Felt awesome to pass someone on a $5k bike on the way up the pass with my 20 year old rag tag single speed. And be able to fend him off in the sprint near the top.
