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'm not trying to knock the dude's bike, but no amount of working on it will make that thing "no longer ghetto."

A month or so ago, some guy posted his converted Schwinn Varsity on the picture page, replete with Velocity Deep V's and Sugino 75 cranks - so an Aerospoke doesn't seem so far-fetched.
