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 dig the Bill Lewis frame, and the trackstand with one foot on the back wheel - funky.
Pics of people doing things like ordinary one and no-handers are probably cooler when you know the people.

trackstand vids are boring by nature because the point of a trackstand is to not move much for a while.

I really like the pic with the sun shining between the guy and his bike when he's trackstanding.

whats up joe. yeah i got ****ed up.

a cab ran over my ankle and right leg and my bike, was a sad moment. was in the hospital for a week, had surgery, now i'm in a boot. i broke the nob bone on the size of your ankle on both sides and have got 5 pins, a plate, and one long ass pin down my leg. its a ****ed up situations, but hey i'll be snowboarding december and i've got the new ride ready to go.

don't hate trackstands, love them. i got my circles down the day i got hit but i guess thats no good now anyway. lots of scartissue and stiffness...plus two killer scars.

Call me up when that ride gets in, I'll bring over some tools and get that **** together so you can stare at it longingly for the next few weeks. Crazy summb#tch.
