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)

I know a guy who rides a motorbecane messenger local. He plays bike polo on it. He even rode the friggin thing to maryland from NYC! If you'd like to talk to him about his experience with this bike, stop by the polo court at chrystie & broome sts this sunday afternoon. He should be there...can't guarantee that 100% tho.

From what I've seen, he's put the bike thru hell and it's surviving. I'm guessing it holds up well.

ha! seriously, tell Phil I sent you. that is his name. the bike is blue, I'm thinking its might just be in the 52-4 range.

of course, now that I told you about this dude, he will probably not show up, making me look like the fool
