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)

Bengal LB rides to the game fixed

Watching the Bengals play today they did a short piece on LB Dhani Jones riding his bike to the game.. It was a fixed gear with bull horns. Kind of strange seeing a 240# bruiser riding fixed.

For some reason the only thing that came to my head after reading this was mental imagery of him snapping cranks every time he mashes up a hill and shredding tires till sparks are flying every time he skids. I hope that's congruous with the reality of him riding fixed.

I tried to find the video on youtube to no avail but he is featured in a bunch of videos about global warming. Pieces to the puzzle...

Dhani Jones rules, I wish he were actually a good football player and maybe we would've kept him around philly, he has more personality in his pink bow tie than most players do in their whole roided out bodies.

So I take it you've never watched match sprints at a velodrome? Some of those guys are HUUGE.

I ride over in Cincy several times a week and I believe I've seen him. Maybe a steamroller? Either way good to see somebody bike commuting on TV. Also might help dispell the myth that the only people who bike commute are poor people.

i missed the game as i was at my fiance's families house in toledo for thanksgiving, but i saw the highlights later and got all excited when i saw that.

laugh if you must but i've been watching the bengals since my grandpa got me into them when i was 4 or 5. i've been laughed at many years for cheering them on, specially since i didn't even live in cincy most of the time. haha.
