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)

I just got home from my gf's brother's house. During the middle of my unturkey Xmas feast, I noticed that his pepper grinder was made by peugeot. With the help of the spiked soy nog I exclaimed my surprise a little too loud. I then had to explain how cool peugeot is, because saying "holy **** a peugeot grinder!" doesn't really help your attempts at family assimilation.

Peugeot has been making pepper mills since 1842.
