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)

yeah...i'm not going to use a servo for the deployer though. instead i'm going to hook it up to a third brake cable, and put the lever on the underside of the top tube. (it was my girlfriends bike, and its a ladies style).

As a bike riding crime fighting superhero I'm occasionally persued by evil velo villains. This'll be useful.
