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)

Fixed gear in music video

All 2 minutes of that video that I watched just seemed to be saying "Look at how indie we are"

One of my favourite BoC songs:

I only know about this video because a friend of mine linked me to it due to me having the same bike(I like the song too):

30 Seconds to Mars has always been heavy on symbology and melodrama- their new album, that song, and that video are no exceptions at all.

Their new album has a running theme of conflict between man and nature. The whole car-smashes-indie-cyclist-who's-spirit-is-a-white-horse-and-the-indie-cyclist-will-never-stop thing fits perfectly.

that was filmed at my friend's DIY warehouse in downtown LA and him and some of his friends are on the ride. They all hate this band but did it for the $$$.

I like the video, but the group/song is weak.

Let us know when you have half the voice Leto does.

Meh, what can I say- arena rock is one of my guilty pleasures.

I know that place, and I can imagine them not liking this band. I've been there a few times and it's always been for strange things.



I'm assuming we are talking about the same warehouse because I can think of no other place like it
