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)

Top songs to listen to while ridin

Ok so I realize this thread is going to lead to name calling but I though it would be fun.. So what do you jam while cycling or while preparing to ride if you don't listen -while- riding.

Mine are in no praticual order and often change but for now.

Black crowes- hard to handle
Blur - song 2
AC/DC - back in black
Outkast - B.O.B. bombs of baghdad
Luda- Rollout
311- omaha stylee
Beasti boys - paul revere
Mos def and talib kwali - Just to get by
NOFX - the brews
Rage against the machine - People of the sun

if I weren't concerned with hearing what was going on around me, I'd listen to nothing but blue grass. banjo's kind of get me all excited...

nature's music when in the dirt, human-made when on the fix or roadie...


i listen to music all day @ work. when i ride...i want to be consumed by all that is in that place @ that time, from the wind in the trees to the roar of engines as the cars go by...


now, if i'm on the trainer...wsp, moe., ymsb, beastie boys, etc...anything live i've recently d/l'ed

Hell yes, ACDC.. I don't listen while I ride, but I do enjoy music. Right now I've got on ACDC (always), David Bowie, MIA, TV on the Radio, Shellac, and Neil Young. Pretty weird mix I guess!

Slayer always, except for the new one, the covers one, and the live ones.

12 minute sprint up the hill set that still works after 1.5 years:

show me your heart - need new body
stigmata - ministry
nwo - ministry
death's head - slayer

On the trainer:

loud hooky college rock (Pixies, Thermals, Cat Claw by the Kills)
grindcore (and specifically *not* death metal, which is too soloey/atmospheric for me - Nasum, Pig Destroyer, Rotten Sound, Cephalic Carnage, Kill The Client)
