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)

Kids' Messenger Book

I was looking up an old book on Amazon (Messengers Style ) and came across this children's book about Messengers. Seems pretty damn cool.
