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)

check this out, it's like bike polo without the mallets. and the bikes are pretty cool too. obviously specialized for this sport. this looks like it's in taiwan or korea? thailand maybe? excuse my ignorance. anyhow, here's the vids:

cycleball is a sport with the UCI. They hold a worldchampionship every year. usually at the same time they do the artistic cycling competition. that is the one when they do all the backward circles on the back wheel while doing a headstand....blah blah...

cycleball is huge in southern germany...so i hear...it is rad though...

what do you think those ratios are?

I bet 1x1...or pretty close toget up like that
