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)

Wtf mate?

I was in little five points passing out food with food not bombs, and I see a parent ride by on a hybrid and a kid who is maybe 4 ft ride by weaving unsteadily on a fixed gear thats looks likes it might be it is too big for me. I am sure it was fixed because the pedal stroke was smooth even when his feet were not on them.

they were on the sidewalk and I was afraid he would fall off and into traffic or hit a ped, the kid couldnt straddle the top tube flat footed on a sloping frame bike. I didnt catch the model.

just seemed unsafe.

You're just jealous because his bike was nicer than yours.

It was more of the saftey issue

Well... perhaps your bike was so completely NOT stolen that he in fact, blew your mind?
