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)

Vicegrips are the wrong tool for EVERY job. I suggest 7 pairs.

only 7?

I mean, you'll need atleast two pairs extra to use as hammers.
