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)

heads up on something funny.

i don't know fixed gear just attracts a certain type of person or what, but we seem to share more than just liking bikes that have pedals that won't stop turning and njs stuff and whatnot. for one thing, there seems to be a similar sense of humor shared here. which is why i highly, highly, highly suggest this book to you all:

shel silverstein--"uncle shelby's ABZ book". it doesn't have bicycles in it, but it does have a part that advocates putting sugar in your dad's gas tank.

I first read the giving tree as a teenager and was blown away. I was very happy when at Christmas I saw someone had gotten it for my niece - I got her the Sneetches and was saving the Giving Tree for her birthday.

Everyone, go in daddy's wallet and send the evil green paper to um, a mod.
