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)

Alley Cat Secret Weapon

This thing looks ridiculous but fun. Uses a pulse Jet Engine and can easily reach speeds over 70mph. My only concern would be the wheels holding up.


See it in action http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fxuUjlTzLy0

loadeds are beat, way too much money for a board with mediocre performance. I wish I had my Motion Comet 49 still.
