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)

That's very generous of you to spread this sweepstakes and decrease the odds of you winning, assuming you entered.

It's a great bike, why not make it interesting? One entry per person so odds wont be skewed that much. That prize will make someone very happy I'm sure, and yes I entered... just being "true to the (bfssfg) crew"!

Why do triathletes have such a lousy aero position?
