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)

Try walking one through a police riot. I have. You will not be a popular guy. People will compose songs on the spot about what an ******* you are. Really.

assuming that you're linking to saint john's web server because you went/go there i will say this: there are no hipsters or hills in collegeville or saint joseph. there are fratties and monks and an occasional girl who listens to late 90's built to spill.
