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)

my brother in law is responsible for this. he listened to a james brown christmas record last night.

this is just like the time...
he got into mitch hedberg, a month later mitch died.
he saw death in philly, a month later chuck schuldiner was dead.

whenever he gets interested in anything it dies.
