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)

Philly: Seen the L'emmings stickers around?

They have a simple picture of a fixie with the word L'emming above it. The product of some angry hater? Or ironic self-deprecation? Some brand I've never heard of?
