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)

Are you talking about the Land Rover ad? Where the location finder goes trekking around and when he's talking to the director and there's one in the background?

If not, then there's one in that ad too!

There's a "fixie" or some type of road bike in like fifty TV commercials right now. It just means you are mainstream (or "hip").
