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 ordered one and the dude shipped me a half eaten grilled cheese sandwich. I was going to file a complaint, but it was delicious so I would have felt bad.

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.
