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)

I was hoping that was Boot's bike, and this was his solution to hauling his girlfriend around the city.

Yes it is a GT Timberline.
Yes it has a handle bolted to the top tube.
Yes it is fugly.
I am 416 not 614
I hope it is not diseased.
Plastic stays till I find cool grips.
You won't 'get it' till you ride it.
Dare you to try and drop me.
