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)

They must have retouched those bikes.. Do you think guys that rode sloping top tube bikes could score chicks like the ones in the picture? No way.

I totally looked at the bike on the right and saw chopped down flat bars first, and the rest of the long handlebars in his hand after I woke up...
