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 meant it is "loud" in a good way Even though I'm not a fan of baby blue/pink, I dig the coordination of the colors. Definitely a head-turner!
