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)

When it fits like a glove

Although I love riding I love my bike so much that in the back of my head I have a fear that I will crash and trash my bike. Then I'd have to get a new bike and I would have to get used to it. I love getting on my bike and feeling like I know it and how to handle it better than anything else. it just feels so right.

And an infinite supply of beer.

This beer tastes so good it almost makes me cry. What happens when I finish it? Good thing I've got my backups...
