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)

The wooden rims are tight.


Makes me wonder about a bamboo Calfee with wooden rims.

He's saying that the bicycle is the vehicle which allows you to go a distance approaching an infinite number of miles per gallon of gasoline.

Looks like a seat stabilizer to me.

Even thought I'm of the school that bicycles should be ridden, I'd have that thing over my mantle. I'd be too scared to ride such a gem.

That is absolutely beautiful. It never ceases to amaze me how bikes haven't really changed much in 100 years. Well, at least steel track bikes.

Sweet Jesus, both of those bikes are amazing. I'm surprised there were no jokes involved the requisite aerospoke within the first couple posts. I think everyone was just so awestruck we couldn't be dicks.
