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)

Cool man - I actually sold my Jamie Roy a month ago to some guy from JP, but I liked it a lot (it just didn't fit me quite right). Since you're in the Somerville/Cambridge area, you should come to "Thursday nights at the Ghettodrome" (read: MIT running track).

If you see a Steamroller with a carbon fork (or a black GT Pulse) near Porter or going up/down Mass Ave., chances are it's me. I'll be on the lookout for your Jamie Roy.
