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)

You cannot fight the system here at BikeForums.

It's much better to become one with the Universe.

Just buy into the latest system-generated "**** the system" sub-culture du-jour, whatever that might be. Urbane unicyclists?

listen to public enemy repeatedly on a very large and very 80s boombox with knuckle charms reading "LOVE" and "HATE." live in an impoverished New York City district with a pizza shop owned by a fat italian man. once your local crazy radio jockey announces how hot it is, begin a riot against the italians. get killed by the police trying.

you have successfully "faught the system."
