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)

This came out of a current *****fest on the SF CL bike section. Someone put a "humourous" WTB listing for a totally hip fixie and it started a firestorm.

Since the number of fixies is discrete, it should really say "ONE FEWER FIXIE."
