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)

Cool! Do you have "Warm and Cool"? I think it was reissued recently. I spent about 6 months tracking down an import copy back in high school, and it's still one of my favorite albums ever.

Yep. I found it on ebay a few years ago. Still haven't gotten the reissue yet, but I plan to. "Around" is the new instrumental album. It's very similar, in other words great.
