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)

very cool but i'd much rather they were sold through obama's site for 10 bucks to contribute to getting him in the white house.

a dollar to raise public awareness that bikers are democrats? not worth much. making a contribution to the cause? worth much more.
so much more that i'd rather people just donated a dollar and then made their own.

Yeah, they should mention that on the site, if you buy some spoke cards, make sure you drop a $10 on Obama too.

These are cool.

I'm just glad they're not Shepard Fairey stuff, even though the inspiration from his poster is obvious. I just can't pay money for anything he has touched. I was bummed to know he did the famous Obama HOPE poster.

GOBAMA!
