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)

Anyone else have a collection of old bike pics like this? We are going to have a photo wall in the co-op we starting up. I have a small collection already but I would love to have more. Please post pics or links. Thanks

Button-shoulder jerseys (would those be Breton-style?) are the things dreams are made of. Didn't Peterson-era Bridgestone make them? Someone needs to bring those back.
