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)

Right on!

For four years, I lived above my office on 9th & B. Only ONCE did I ride to work via the Central Park loop during that time, even though I talked about doing it all the time.
