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)

Check out my new "trick" video

Hey everyone, I made a short video of me messing around on my bike tonight. I thought I would post it here. By the way, I completely understand that there are countless videos of people waaaay better than me. This video is just about me having fun on my bike. Nothing more, nothing less. Lemme know what you think.

The song is Around the Horn by The Bronx. Cat porn is the best kind of porn.

You'd be happier if you raise your seat like an inch or so.

Really? I ride with it as low as it is only because I actually have pretty short legs for my height.

Yeah, sorry to be a naysayer, but I could barely see what you were doing. My professional advice is to shoot during the day.
