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)

If the Huffy is a vintage, Serotta-produced, Olympic-specific frame, then sure, I'd take the Huffy.

But I want to sleep with common people. Like you.

Whenever people start threads like this I like to use ye olde "find all posts by" function and have a chuckle. We've all posted stupid things. Let it go.
