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)

Man, some of you dudes need to chill the **** out.

You realize that you all just ride bicycles, right?

I'd hate to see this forum take a fieldtrip to china. You'd all flip your lids at the lack of foot retention and ****ty wheelsets.

I'm with him ^

Get over yourselves. You're trying too hard to be elitists and it's very unbecoming.

Haha, my hand was taking a beating from the COLD wind, that's why I look so funny. Plus I didn't want to drop my glove (which I'm biting) or the camera while riding
