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)

believe it or not, i was thinking about doing a similiar thing. maybe a big sticker that said "trendy!" on my downtube or something. (Would that me a poseur-posenger?).

Anyway I like the shirt though... is that a DIY job?
