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)

It's been considered the most exciting cultural phenomenon since the Zephyr Team.

You haters!
It's not about skatin'... it's about going as far as you can. Commitment to every line, corner, and grind is what defines the style of these San Francisco skaters.
Come push with us!

You mean that professional skaters are probably better than you? I don't believe it.

Is there a specific fixed-gear video that they are spoofing?

are they actually professionals? i haven't kept up with skating for years. that would explain stuff like ollie-ing to a wall ride with only one foot on the board, crap like that. funny, though, cuz the way they were pushing made some of the riders look really sloppy. ha ha, guess that's the point, though....

Not really, but it does have a little Mash-vibe to it.

Holy crap. Foundation still exists? I figured that they would have sold out to Target or something by now.
