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)

yeah ha would it be a good bike to learn on? I would put on a front brake for sure, or else the rents wouldn't even let me have it. Im hoping he takes my offer of a trade that is basically worth 100 dollars to me
