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)

My friend has a similar bike to that, except that the front is a rear triangle. The bars are alot lower, so you put your legs over the bars and pedal the FRONT wheel. Ghetto-recumbent. Its a coasterbrake too. Lots of dangerous fun!

was it one of those akward deals that you have to crawl in and out of and hope that a friend would hold it up while you did? those are the worst.
