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)

HED 3 wheels? Hipster!

Oh, but seriously, is this even out in the U.S. yet? I have a friend
who works at the local Landmark theater, and I've told him to be on
the lookout for me, but no word yet.

I read the book too, it was very inspirational. The guy went through a lot for sure, probably still is. I've been waiting for this movie to come out.

The front wheel on that has at least 12 spokes. Not aero. Nice to see him on 20" front and 60" rear. FUNNY TRAIN

I'm just reading Obree's autobiography now. The part where Moser rolls up his right trouser leg and borrows Obree's bike made me smile.
