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)

It's where's waldo, but with BB.

Seriously though. I may have some sewing DIY questions in the coming weeks. I feel confident thanks to BB that a bike subforum will have more answers then a local Joanna Fabrics.

Yeah the posts where I suggested to people that skipping, skidding and other hispter braking tricks were superior to normal braking ought to have been deleted.
