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)

Next year I'll be at NYU, BU, Georgetown, George Washington, or Mcgill. Not sure which yet.
In my high school of ~90 kids there are at least 10 people who bike, probably 5 on fixed bikes.

I graduated from UCSC in 03. They sent me a letter asking me for money recently. I aint giving them shit b/c the cut down some of my favorite trees to make room for college 13 or whatever. Plus they killed the trailer park, and instituted a mandatory grades policy. But they did give me a "fiat slug" sticker, which is on my soma.

Yeah, they are sort of falling in line with most of the other uc campuses now. They still have people living in the trees though so maybe the school has a chance of keeping its uniquely santa cruz charm.

I graduated last May from Geneva College. I'm pretty sure I was the only student with a fixed gear.
