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)

Score of the week

Afer seeing the flipped over comfort bars (quasi-moustache) that I have on the beast, a riding buddy of mine asked if I wanted his old bullhorn and aero bars. I said sure and a few days later surfaced as set of Cinelli L.A.84's. Free. Very comfy with smooth transitions. The 26.4 center gave a bit of grrrrr to the equation, but it works out fine on a stem with removable face. Of course they instantly went on the Slingshot.

Anybody else find soome buried treasure?

No, but I was giver, not the givee this weekend. My buddy crashed his bike last weekend and snapped his handlebar. I had a spare laying around the garage. He's back up and riding.

Spread the cycling love!
