Love your Henri Desgrange quote on the SSFG homepage:
I turned 45 in January. Can I still get a fixie, or is it like Logan's Run, and my life clock is now totally black?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!
My slick'd 1989 Ritchey Outback is fine, but I'm itching for a true roadie, and I love the simplicity of these... (Obsessed with getting a Surly Steamroller...)
Am I a fool to want one?
