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)

Fun Little Video

Here is a video about our city's last alleycat. The people that made the video are from a local magazine. I think it represents my thoughts well. Let me know what you think?

Yea I wasn't too happy with the group that they followed around most of the time, they were the kind of riders that were the most inexperienced (ie riding on the sidewalk). But I think it really shows how much fun everybody has.
