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)

How to post in the Fixed Gear Gallery

Sorry for the ignorant question but how do I post pics or submit them to be posted on the Fixed Gear Gallery? I cannot figure it out. I know I will feel like an idiot when I get the answer.

Send them an email with your pics.

EDIT: more specifically scroll down and look on the right for the huge link that says Submit pics here.
Easiest way to do it, Ctrl+F then search for submit.

Thanks

before/after for conversions is also necessary. Because we like to see how nice it looked before, and how crappy it looks now. (I ride a conversion, but it ALWAYS looked crappy)

Unfortunately I am a crossover from the Roadie forum so we only take pics in front of a white garage door. We have different bikes but the same garage door.

Make sure you raise your saddle and lower your bars a little for that aggressive look.

fixed gear gallery has shown me that there are a lot of unskilled people with cameras in the world, myself included.

on the otherhand, some people have really, really great photos.

I miss my dog... One week and I'll see him again.

Can I re-submit now that my bike looks like a P.O.S.?
