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)

any fixed gear IRC channels out there?

i spend a good portion of my life (at work and home) on IRC but i've never found any interesting bike channels on any network, and was wondering if anyone here knew one or IRC's anywhere?

does IRC mean Internet Radio? So, a radio station that plays fixed-gear music? Like as in one guitar string, one drum, one mic, etc.?

EDIT: Here are the radio stations I listen to at work:
WFMU 91.1 Jersey City check out the archives- Downtown Soulsville
This American Life Not really a radio station, but the Shlt anyway
Futureboogie Some good mixes
Sambacana old school Brazilian music
Beats in Space The resident DFA records DJ

EDIT 2: This is actually completely OT
