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)

Desktop Wallpaper

Just wondering what everyone uses as their desktop wallpapers, either bike related or not.

Or if you have some great pictures (in general) post them up.

There are a couple of Flickr applications that will change you wallpaper at selected intervals. Also Slickr will run as a screensaver with images pulled from the site.
