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)

FGG hits new low. I can see the car but not the bike.

This guy makes me want to crawl into a hole and die. Seriously, who does he think he is. I can go out to any Whole Foods and see a god damn BMW. And worst of all, that bastard takes up two spots. I do not give a **** about your small cock compensating car. And the exposure sucks too. This guy sucks.

Haha... odd that he would submit with a car in the photo.

Anywho on a lighter note, did anyone see this ?:

Brings smile to my face. Greatest thing ever. I first thought, "brakeless?! No way" but realized to hole that he will probably stick a brake on when his son is big enough to ride.

So awesome.

Few words truly encapsulate the essence of a person as perfecly as "******" does.

OMG it has a top tube protector? Is jr going to ride it in the halway of his school and lock it to his desk? Do they make a chrome JR? That is one of the coolest bikes I've ever seen. That kid is going to get so much play.

Oh, and assuming that the cog on that thing is 16T or so, the kid is pushing 28.6 gear inches.
