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)

Your friend won this in a bet? What was the bet, and what would your friend have had to give had he lost?

There's a "What is it worth?" subforum in the Classic and Vintage. Take it there. And get bigger, better, and more pics.
