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)

post your crazy lockup pics

I always enjoy seeing bikes locked up in a ridiculous anti-theft fashion. how do you lock up to the top of a signpost?

I love seeing decent bikes locked up by just the front wheel and they have a quick release, going into the building, coming back out and there just being a front wheel locked up.

Looks pretty secure to me. I bet that string holding the kickstand to the chainstay is a boobytrap of some sort.

i didnt know that being able to lift a bike 2 feet automatically deletes the cable preventing the rear wheel from making full rotations, neat trick though

is it just me or would you not have trouble riding a bike that has a lock through the frame and rear wheel... i can totally see picking it up and running... but not riding


guy above beat me to it



but i saw 2 decent road bikes (ok not amazing, but atleast 1-2k) locked to each other outside of my work... whats the bike jacker gonna be like "aw ****, well i was only gonna steal the red one, but now its locked to the blue one too? damn i guess i'll have to take them both..."

we do that alot down here. We all ride to the cafe and all lock up in a big chain of bikes. like my bike was locked to another which was locked to a tandem which was locked to two other bikes.

But the only time bikes around here get stolen is if you leave them with no lock. Even a cheap coil lock is enough to deter thieves around here. People love their vehicles too much to go for a bike.

Frame over shoulder = instant get away. I carry my bike like that all the time.

Why does a post about pictures have so many words in it?

Boggles the mind.
