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)

The Scenery Photo Thread

I, personally, like to take a lot of pics on my bikes, especially when there's nice scenery around or it's just a cool shot to take. So this'll be the thread for those moments with your bike that you like to capture (btw, it don't have to be just singlespeed bikes)

I sold this bike, but here was a cool one

If anyone besides you started this, it would totally get hated on. Nice photo, your rear wheel tripped me out at first.. I thought a metal beam was going through the spokes.

Knee - I don't think that would happen. It's a contributory thread inviting all to join and face no scrutiny (unlike the other threads)

Raiden - You have a cotic?! How is that frame? Those are really nice and versatile looking bikes Did you get it in the states or pay a handsome shipping fee? I love all that can be done with it!

The frame was already in the states- someone bought an extra for himself, then decided to sell it for around the price of the frame alone. Its been my fixed-gear, roadie, CX, touring bike, and commuter so far. I love the frame, but for every unique feature, there's often a catch associated with it.

Sweet! Another excuse to post pics of our tarck bieks!

Here's a crappy one, taken at DUMBO, Brooklyn. I liked how the frame sort of blended into the guard rails.

Don't have any from last year and a half after getting my camera jacked... Suppose I should buy a new one soon.

There is a reason that I normally run a puny gear ratio. Even the "flat" roads are a couple percent grade for the most part. Taking the track bike across the St. Louis River Bay with track gearing and 23c slicks was just jackass tho (made it all the way over to Wisconsin with only a couple foot-downs).

Oh yeah, speaking of climbs, heights, and fixed-gears: Me and my old Langster (running 42x20 for one day only) at the top of Mt. Diablo, looking out over the east bay. That ride is 3200' of climbing in under 11 miles. I had to turn my wheel around to the freewheel to take it back downhill.

"Posertown" now makes so much sense, roadfix. Have you ever tried going up to the sign with your fg?

Damn these threads, they make me feel bad about never taking a camera with me.
