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)

hey! i teach at brooklyn college (except not this semester). i usually lock up on bedford, tho, since that show-your-id-to-use-the-bike-parking thing takes way too long.
