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 prefer Tanka - 5/7/5/7/7 for a total of 31 syllables.

I ride my fixie
Pleasant early autumn night
Leaves rustle and talk

Streetlights shine on empty roads
Nobody knows this but me
