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)

not completely on topic but if i'm ever in the passenger seat of someones car and we pass a person on a bike everyone in the car usually thinks i'm checking the cyclist out...rather than the bike.
