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'm actually kinda upset at this. I was hoping that the human body would be able to do something machines could never be able to do. I always figured riding a bike and balancing like that could never be taught to something. You have to feel to get it right...
