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)

AIDS Life Cycle

hello everyone,

i am participating in my 5th AIDS Life Cycle ride. Its a bicycle ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles. Its an amazing event.

This year I have made the decision to do the ride fixed!!!

The money donated goes towards AIDS awareness and AIDS prevention.

I love doing this event every year. This year im starting my fundraising events as early as possible to ensure that I meet my $3000 goal. Any donations that you guys can spare would be great. All donations can be used as a tax write off if that matters to anyone.

please go to

.............

i could also use any pointers and advice that you guys have. this is my first time that ive posted this on a forum like this. so im hoping for some great feed back!!

thanks a million,
lucas

before even opening this thread, i saw OP's username and thought to myself, "i bet that's a guy".

dear lucas: your username is stupid. please change it. unless you don't want to be taken seriously here, in which case, carry on.

I'm interested in doing this as well. It will be my first time. How hard is it going to be on a fixed gear? or maybe i'll flip the wheel and go single speed? Just wondering if I need to get a geared road bike for this?
