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)

Damn, I wish I'd built up my mini-bike already. It was going to have a beer can holder on the bars and tassels.

Looks like you welded that top tube with a flamethrower.
What possessed you to "create" (note the quotes) that?
The contest should be over.

The long dead fixie Mk I. Second-hand bonded aluminum frameset that literally broke in half while riding in traffic down Grand Ave in Chi, Rock Shox Ruby fork, etc. It was ugly as sin, but it actually was lovely to ride. You never stop loving the first, no matter how ugly...

How I wish I had a more detailed photograph!

It's an 80's Canada Peugeot with a beefy Titec stem, celeste pista fork, fsa orbit x headset, Fizik Poggio saddle, ProD bullhorns...

...hideous. You should see the rear brake setup.

Something I threw together with my brother at Kraynik's PGH so he could ride something other than his DH rig on the street.
