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)

After spending the past two days in Washington D.C., and I've got to say that I've never seen so many interesting and different single speeds. I really wish that I could have taken mine with me on the trip, but rain prevented it.

I should have a picture of my single up here in the next few weeks, if I don't become lazy (what will probably happen).

That's a pretty looking ride. I would think a little too pretty for a punk like you.

It's just the jealousy talking...

recently purchased Specialized Langster. I think the only issue I have with this here frame is the amount of flex I get with it when I get up out of the seat and start to pedal my ass off.

Somebody has finally discovered your true identity! But now we have to decide which one you are.

Lookin' nice. Your hundreds of adoring fans would like you to put up a new pic with the bar tape on it.

I was thinking of getting a set of those kind of pedals for local riding. What did they set you back? Recommend those?

I did find this picture of Skitbra taking his first non-geared bike ride and figured I would share it:

Interesting drop outs on that Iro. Looks like they took some bar stock steel and just cut them out.
