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)

I'm curious

I live in San Francisco. I see a fair amount of fixed riders around here. I've never ridden a fixed gear, so I'm just curious how the hell they manage that in a hilly city like SF?

Is it difficult?

I must admit that some of the nicest and cleanest bikes I see are fixed gears. Their simplistic design is so appealing.

the key is not hurting yourself as you walk your bike through the mission...although there are a good number of riders (click) here that might help you with some info!
