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 used to see one every day when I dropped my kid off at school, it was parked in a driveway up the street from the school and I would go out of my way just to take another look at it the day I built up the guts to stop and knock at the door it was gone! prob for the best as I would have invested money that I really didnt have at the time into it (if it was for sale that is)

coke really isn't worth that much. how many six packs worth could you fit in a trunk? $100 bucks worth? you're way off on this one.
