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)

"... They are described as exhilarating and hair-raising..."

This guy writes like Montgomery Burns speaks. Either he's straight out of the New Deal or this reporter reaallly hated doing this story.
