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)

he looks like a typical SF rider to me.....hopefully he rides the sh*t out of his bike and has more fun than anybody who makes fun of him on a stupid internet forum.

"be hip by riding this FIXED-GEARED bicycle"
(Then someone whispers "Bianchi")
