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)

very carefully.

I like all those bikes.

The first one's all mad max looking, the second one's just dumb and left for drunken ideas, the third is great if you ever want to ride across the country or anywhere and the tall bike is always a crowd pleaser.

That Cannondale pic really makes me want to do some touring... badly.

I <3 softrides, but doubt they would be a good choice for an everyday rider for me. (Read, I don't want to fork out that much money right now at all)
