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)

I think Chris Rock had a bit about the difference between track people and fixers...

"Everything roadies don't like about track bikes, track people don't like about track bikes. It's like our own personal civil war. On one side, there's track people. On the other, you've got fixers. The fixers have got to go. I love track people but I hate fixers. I am tired of fixers. Tired, tired, tired."
