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)

Your dream table - no brakes, either.



Saw it in Paris - substitute with Velocity Deep V's, some Dura Ace hubs, and different forks and I would probably throw it in my living room.

Plus, its just like you jokers like it - brakeless!

if they did, i would think it would be pretty annoying.

on a different note, you could take the wheels off and use it as a coffee table.

that's kind of how i imagined it working. like it was perfectly spaced/balanced so the table would stand regardless of the relation of the positions of the seperate wheels to each other, and so it could roll around all crazy. you know, like wheels on a shopping cart. that would be awesome. i'm actually a bit disappointed to realize that it's not going anywhere, though that does make it a bit more practical.

i want one.

Man, it would suck to accidentally kick one of those wheels under the table and have the whole thing move while eating dinner... I'd imagine that they probably locked everything down tight, and that the wheels don't even spin...

I went to great pains to spell "brakes" correctly, then spelled "Your" as "You".

Anyway,

I didn't get to interact with this table, but I think it does not move around that easily...

the wheels can spin if you lift it

since they all face different directions it cant roll anywhere

Plenty of clearance for fenders in case your place floods.
