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)

id assume he knows what frame he owns. i think its a safe bet he got it second hand. if you do a search for "skidmark" on fixed gear gallery, youll see he has quite the stable.

Skidmark is pretty nuts, he's always winning denver races and comps. The guy just won't stop pedaling.

I don't mind so much, unless I'm doing no handed stuff. Then I definitely hate it!

I don't think that's the bike's fault...ridere makes no handed slow riding 'twitchy' or not

I live in Denver, but I am moving to Seattle. The bike was a Tiemeyer, i got it for $50 from some US national team punk, I think he wanted to buy an eighth of weed. I loved that bike, but recently I have sold a lot of stuff in anticipation of my move. I have one track bike now, a custom merlin.
