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)

cool track racing dvd

i just returned from a private screening of a near-complete 80 minute film
on the history of track racing in the states, much of it focused on the six-day
era. for any of you that enjoy the lineage of the bikes, the riders, the races,
and all the peripherals, hook up with this link and remember to order a dvd
when it hits the market.

i see on the site that a 2 minute clip can be viewed here:
