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)

^ actually that's what pake and a lot of other companies use.. then they cover them with canvas + velcro.. 1st time i saw that i laughed.. now the better makers actually sew the padding inside.. showing some effort.
