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)

digging the 16 spoke radial front, would prefer a deeper section.

running radial lacing on the rear seems like a bad idea. though i do believe the skid durability of wood is better than that of gatorskins or everwears.

That guy up front is about to get his loin cloth caught in his back wheel. That can't possibly end well.

At least they have their feather helmets on. That should help.
