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)

[QUOTE=TMonk;16751515]Did you like it?

Yeah it was cool. Felt confident riding close like that, I held my line well. The dude next to me got freaked out when I got out of the saddle you can see him swerve a way from me. It's just a habit I have to stand on an incline as most of us ss/fg riders probably do. I stayed seat from then on I didn't want to be "that guy" that ballsed it up.

Here's a snapshot I took of a video of me warming up on the track a bit ago, video came out too shaky to use.
