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)

Pictures of you riding your bike(s)

I've recently come to terms with the idea that some people actually ride their fixed gear bikes. After much consideration, I've decided to stop accessorizing, up and side-grading my bike- for now, at least- and start riding it.

I'll start with learning how to track stand and ride backwards in a nearby parking lot; in the meantime, I'd like to see what some of you people actually look like while you ride your bikes.

Posture, how stretched out or upright you are and the like. If you all could be so kind as to post a picture of you riding, or, if it please you, balancing on your bike in your living room, with an idea of how you generally ride, ie. long rides on roads; lots of city riding through busy streets; to various tough Brooklyn locales in which you'd like to photograph your bike, etc.

Basically, I want to SEE how you all ride, more so than just seeing your bikes at their prettiest balancing on a random object.
