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)

Anybody notice that he's only running a front brake? My guess is he's off to the bike shop to get parts/tools that he needs to go fixed. I don't see shifters either.

I think it's a singleator on there. And he's pushing a big gear. Nice to see, even with the short legs he hasn't resorted to compact geometry. Lastly, props for the rad freestyle trackstand form.

He has excellent balance, look at that unorthodox track stance!

I want to get me a pair of those spokeless wheels. They work using lightweight magnets, right?
