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)

hmmm .. i wonder how hard it would be to melt acrylic bar stock into drops .... hmmm ... Actually, the melting part wouldn't be that hard, it would be the forming part that's a pain in the ass.
