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)

Solo on my friend's Free spirit cruiser. About 1 month before I got my 10 speed.

The official "how many can you pull?" challenge. I think we got up to 7 or 8.

No brakes, no retention.
I can't believe my brother has the same sweater I bought. He was with me when I bought that thing then bought the same one a week later.

You'd better not let mark ride that thing before you at least put some straps on it. If he cracks his head I'm gonna kick your ass.

haha I've got a quick fix! Pull your wheel further back in your drop outs, or remove a link. Presto!

Well I told him how extremely unsafe it was, but hes going to get some pedals and straps I believe. He's been riding it a bit, but i think he knows the danger.

Thanks! I quit freestyle 17 years ago and started re-riding about 6 months ago. The trick I'm doing is a forward rolling trick called a "hitchhiker".
