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)

ghost ride the fix

no, i'm not talking about what is sometimes referred to as pedaling with one foot, or, more commonly, steering a second bike while riding but rather rolling my bike, and dancing along beside it (keeping it up and going) while going "ghost ride the whip." i honestly don't know how i came to associate this recent internet fad with biking, nor why i chose to do it. i didn't keep it up long. what i can say is that it was a lot of fun. 9/10

I thought ghost riding was riding towards non moveable object like brick wall then jumping off and letting the bike coast into said object?
