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)

Seriously. All FGG postings should require at least one interpretive element. Love it.

When I post my new conversion, I'm going to shop in a ghost of abraham lincoln in his stove pipe hat riding my bike into heaven and looking down wistfully at ford's theater. june cleaver will be on his handlebars with a fresh pie in her hands.

June Cleaver should be on a pennyfarthing going the other way about to throw a pie at Lincoln. Bonus points for John Wilkes Booth laughing manically on the back.
