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)

glad to see he got it built. I sold that frame on ebay 6 months ago. also glad he is healthy. the paint is original late 80's from a team in seattle that was also the rosin importer.

yeah, both hot rossin's...death rides a fixed gear and that black schwinn were pretty nice, too. shants' bike is, of course, ridiculous. i'd expect nothing less from him.

Every time that rainbow rossin comes up on eBay I check my bank account and sigh loudly. Looks like it's found a permanent home. Sigh.

When I get around to building myself a frame, I am biting that paintjob.

to ride slowly or not? i dunno, i don't zip around fast all the time, but it actually seems like a lot of work to me to go slowly. then no clips and no brakes and having to ride slow...cripes, cheap clips cost ten bucks.

Oh, I run clips and straps on just about everything.

I'm still slow, though.

oh, i get what you're saying about riding slow. as a physical characteristic. no, i'm not the fastest either. i'm very quick. i dunno, i'll find out how not fast i am when i hit the velodrome in a bit.

i thought you were talking about the bikes and i didn't really get why you'd say that. i get it now. i figured mattface meant "slowly" as in the old shady dudes who ride mtb's on the sidewalk at about 3 mph. only hipsters with platform pedal fixies riding on the road at 3 mph.
