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)

Beauty

After looking at all the fixies at fixedgeargallery.com, I don't think anyone can top this one:



What does your favorite fixed gear bike look like?

Looks like Roval wheels. Super light, super smooth. High flange is overrated many times. As to riding it, absolutely. On nice days. Never understood the too nice to ride mentality. Remember hearing a guy that owned a classic Aston Martin (I think) that was being raced at a circuit in England. Sterling Moss wrapped it into the armco and the owner didn't flinch. He basically said, look it was built to be raced. It can be fixed.

Keep the pedigree alive. Ride em.

I've always wanted to do a bike with absolutely no black on it. That masheen comes very close. Makes the bike look really light an etherial, doesnt it?. Nice.

I think I'd smash that bike into a lot of little bitty pieces when I rode it.

Sure is purty though...
