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)

awsome bike protector.

so my cat doesnt like it if anyone gets to close to my bike, even me. i think he thinks its his own. here he comes for the attack. there he is making sure no one is planning a sneak attack. and now its just time to put the pictures of the ride,

makes it easier instead of pulling back the drive side and then having to straight'n the non drive side i just crank back both and its straight. also if the axle nuts are loose and you only have a chain tensioner on the drive side the non drive side can still pull forward and throw the chain. so having no brakes, 2 chain tensioners is the answer.
