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)

Insert Video Here

Someone in a thread a few weeks ago mentioned that we should have a video sticky so I figured I'd go ahead and start it. Post your videos here and maybe if there is enough interest the mods will grace us with a sticky.

This is one of my all time favorite short movies online...

Is that the only video around here? I've only been reading the forums for a few months, but have seen that independently linked at least a dozen times. WTF?

I love all of those videos. I saw the guy doing that fat ass wheelie (in the first video towards the end) when he was doing it and I thought I was dreaming.

Nuts indeed. Few thoughts:

1. Why does homeboy have a painted face & cape?

2. That canned guitar rock is terrible.

3. The guy doing the wheelie in the first video... brilliant!

1. I dunno. Why not? Ride like that you can wear whatever the you want.

2. Yeah! I Love it. All the old school HM faves. Canned...not *really*...canned was more like later stuff like RATT and like VH with Sammy Hagar. Kiss w/o makeup.

3. Yeah x 2. Check this one out. Didn't see this last time I went to Old Skool. 101M D/L, better have a big pipe.

Yes, DeMarco is good, there will be ten minute of the michael martin video in the SF Bike Film Fest, and it will be amazing.

The red-web Drag Race vid at digave.com is the most nuts one I've seen. Theres gaps he makes that just don't seem wide enough for pedals.

Yeah that race is pretty insane, but most of those guys are riding geared roadies.
