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)

Let's see some of your geared bikes........ (retired)

If this has been done before I apologize...still i'd like to see some of your geared rigs if you ride more than just single geared bikes....

My 2009 Giant Defy1. The only thing different is those awful Kendas have been replaced with Conti 4-Seasons. I love that bike a lot. I posted it in the old thread and I'm not sorry.

Of course you can see roadies over in the roadie forum, but that's not what this thread is about. It's good to see what YOU GUYS ride when you ride geared. I know you won't find pics of my race/commute bikes in other forums, so I see a purpose for this thread.

Why not merge this thread with the identical threads that already exist, so that you can enjoy the previously posted geared bikes? They merget the various "jackass" threads, too.

who cares what the thread's about, that's not the point I'm making. the sub-forum is about singlespeed and fixed gear bicycles. If I want to see roadies, I check out the roadie forum. There's a reason why this forum is titled SingleSpeed & Fixed Gear.

I say it's more like different forums for different people, so this thread makes sense.

you're not very good at reading/processing information. If you were, then you would realize that your response is not relevant to my statement and that you are just beating in a point that was already made.

no, you've got that the other way around. Your statement is not relevant to my original point. but it's always been youth before intelligence with you, so I'm not too surprised.

this thread is relevant to the SS and FG sub forum because its about what SS/FG enthusiasts ride gear wise.

its like asking in a soccer forum "what sports do you play besides soccer?"
