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)

the moustache is where he gets his SUPAR STOCK BROK-HAR SMARTS FROM!!!!!!

the moustache makes 100k/yr. what do you make, chester?

the moustache does no-handed, no-footed trackstands in it's sleep.

the moustache can skid for 7 blocks and then do an off-the-back-of-the-saddle dismount.

I love that movie, but my favorite is Breaking Away. The truck drafting scene is so uplifting!

that movie is rad, as long as you don't pay too much attention to the plot, dialogue, etc....though that coffee shop scene where kevin bacon talks about how he loves his job.

I like how the bike turns from a fixed gear, to a single speed, to a fixed gear with a REALLY low ratio in the apartment, then how he looks at the 7 speed cartridge "...quick release, huh?..."
