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)

I don't have any of me riding MY bike but my first fixed gear experience was riding my friends conversion for a weekend in montreal. Apparently the saddle has an asphyxiation with my ******* in this picture

I see people who are loving and riding their bikes. Since we have a thread about your bikes, let's make this thread about you riding it.
Here's me in a match sprint race which wasn't all straight
I see that rider #1 is a sexy beast!
