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)

Found these on eBay for $7/pr... the real kicker is they are cyclist sized... 32x33.5, I can never find any pants long enough for my skinny ass. Thought I'd pass it along, I know that many of us like wool on a cold day on the bike.

Cyclist sized? Maybe I'm cyclist super-sized.

On a more positive note, I love wool.

Those would fit me off the bike, but I think I'd cut a few inches off for actual riding.

Kind of funny that shipping is only fifty cents cheaper than the BIN price...
