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)

No, man of the year would let his bike and girlfriend sleep in the tent while he sleeps outside.

Plus, Time magazine said that I'm "Man of the Year."
