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)

i would definitely be up for something like that, but im an hour away in bloomington, which is lacking in anyone riding fixed, or so it seems. i make my way out there fairly often but not this weekend. someday ill work my way out there to ride around with some of you guys.
