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)

No, not 'nuff said. Someone please explain to me what the ****, exactly, is a scraper bike. Do I just need to take an old beater and put **** in the spokes? WTF?

technically, its a cheap, crappy bike with wheels that are slightly too big for it. But basically any cheap, crappy bike with hed3s is a scraper bike.
