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)

Should we all switch to full suspension MTBs in the winter? And when riding on Milwaukee between Damen and Chicago?

I prefer to look at it as a DIY method of converting a fixed/fixed to a flip-flop.
