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)

I have less money into one of my real bikes than what those cost.

That video just made me throw up in my mouth a little bit. Reminds me of the Tech deck things. I'm pretty sure there were bmx bikes too. Wasn't somebody just saying the FG "fad" is dying? Ha! it's only just begun! Toy fixed gears: for people who... screw it. The level of lameness escapes me.

This is a sign that the end is nigh. These stupid toys are always late to the party, hopefully hipsters will be moving on to something more ironic and less popular.
