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 did a Home Depot run and got some grommets to finish a bike project that I've been thinking about for years, and just in the last month things came together to make it a reality. I had seen a photo of a bike messenger from the 1910s standing with a bicycle that had a canvas sign attached to the frame advertising the company he was riding for. So, I tried to figure out a way to replicate that idea in my own way. Here's the result...

he also took some pics of an alleycat in osaka:

and made this poster for a show he was in london:


and his custom cannondale:


whodathunk!
