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)

We ride with a guy pushin' a stretch chopper fixed gear/ss with full sound. He rocks leading the Critical Mass every month. It's like a party on wheels!

I knew I should have put a picture up when I had it.....I took an old osiris boombag apart and sewed the speakers onto my chrome bag and dropped the 12 battery amp down one of the water bottle slots and cranked the itunes on group fixie rides..it was dope.

In the town where I grew up in central Wisco, (scary place) there was this guy named Tony who would ride these home-built choppers around. He was from a strange family situation and wasn't quite all there. Anyway, after rocking the choppers for a while he decided to take it to the next level and installed a CB radio, complete with a 20' whip antenna.

I used to know his CB handle.

Back when cassette tapes were considered high tech, and Radio Shack was the poor man's Sharper Image, I rigged up a 3 spd bike w/ a sound system and played the "Knight Rider" theme song in a loop during my commute. That song has been in my head for the last 17 years.........................
