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)

Other than the godawful music, the random skateboard and the wack ass promo-ending that video has some sickness. Nice sprint, reminded me of this- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q0O8ZzFuMkQ

Awesome vid! The couple in the gym doing those tricks was just unreal. By the way if you haven't seen it before here is the full video of that final sprint.
