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)

Fixed-Gear Fetish: Have an obsession? Eric Ambel used to admit to just one: guitars. When he plays in singer Steve Earle's band, he has a huge collection of them to choose from. But now, he's collecting something completely different: fixed-gear bicycles. And he's not the only one obsessed with this retro form of riding.

a lil 4.5 min radio piece
