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)

Last climb on the Pittsburgh-Roubaix alleycat (checkpoints were all cobblestone / Belgian-block streets). Not looking so cool after 35 miles of getting my fillings loosened.
