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)

What you need is some cash.

Here's what you've got to do:

Step 1: Collect underpants
Step 2: ???
Step 3: Profit!

Hey veganaise. My suggestion is to not drill holes on that nice killer frame and send that bike my way. Then I can tell you all about the sick moves I pulled on it. This is the only way you'll learn.
