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)

Attn Minneapolis Riders:

Would any of you be willing to ride over to this gallery downtown and check out the bike art show? While you are there could you take a ****-ton of photos too? Then upload them here? I have two pieces showing and I can't make it up to check it out. I am really curious how it all looks. I'll be your bikeforums best friend.

The show features over 100 bike related art pieces from 40 different artists. I'm sure it would be worth your time. Thanks.

It looks like my photos were tucked away in the rear storage area. Score!

Actually, they were the first photos you saw when you walked in. Not that you can tell from the photo set.

Nice photos, by the way.

The ones next to yours all had little "Sold" tags on them. But they were also on $15, so don't feel bad.

There were lots and lots of cool pieces. If you're in Minneapolis, don't miss this show.

*whew* Glad someone was able to do this. I ran out of gas (no lie, I'm a dumbass) and didn't make it up there in time.
