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)

holy jesus! the sprint races are scandalously exciting to watch. i had actually never seen bicycle track races, and i must say the experience has blown me away (and although I was cheering for Theo Bos, Bayley did kick some arse).

Makes me excited for my new fixed (my first) to arrive later this week.

Bailey beat Bos? NO WAY! Bos spanked him in the Worlds. That musta made him mad or something.

Okay, I just switched the telly on. Freakin diving again. Jaysus. They better replay that race tonight....
