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)

Sweet pic from NYC

My girl snapped this on 14th and (4th or 5th?). I thought the pic came out pretty sick. Anybody know the story on this? Just an old advertisement?

There was a big party in the lofts next door after a race a few months ago. Last I remember there was lots of tequila.
