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)

This is a self published book. Getting 150 copies to start and 'print on demand' after that.

I will post the online store details as they materialize check cyclehawk dot com for updates.

Thanks!!

That's awesome squid! Wish I could make it out for this.. there's a chance, but it's a very small one. Maybe I'll be one of the "print on demand" customers Tell Amy I said congrats!
