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)

and "shouldn't be allowed on streets" well technically they're not, and technically his statements are a rant.

+thanks[165]and128. Seriously, I can taste the unintended sarcasm in the first page when he talks about his "clearly laid out argument". It's a few haphazardly thrown together sentences, that never states any evidence, just says his opinion.

Plus, if you ban fixed gears, where will kids ride their tricycles? And where will that dude from monstertrack ride his high-wheeler? Unicycles? Come on folks, open your eyes.
