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)

that clearance is pretty generous for a track frame.

A clever way to ask someone of the opposite sex if they would like a ride on your woodie

who would ride that thing though? I mean aren't all fixed gear cyclists tree loving hippies? That bike is a paradox to the biking community.
