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)

Bikeshop downtown Philadelphia.. name?

There's a bike shop on Walnut St. in philadelphia... 17th or so. I can't remember the name of it. It's not breakaway, it's something farther east... can't remember the name.

There's a sporting goods store in the 1600 block of Walnut, but I don't know of any bike store there.

no, f*ck downtown.
if i'm going to spend time in a city park, it'll be washington square park where cops don't ticket you for riding a bike and you can share a bottle of wine in the grass without having to watch your back.

I can't think of anything on Walnut. All I can think of is Breakaway on Chestnut.
