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)

Riding is better.

But best is to crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and hear the lamentation of their women.

Talking about bikes is just a placebo until I can get out riding again.

RIDING!

I swear this isn't smart a$$. We are in a forum specifically designed to talk about bikes. When we ride that time isn't directly shared back with the group. The perceptions may be altered by this notion.
