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 crit/race videos

I tired searching for a thread of videos, but couldn't find one. If somebody could link me to one, that would be great. Specifically though, I'm looking for race (crit & alleycat) videos, particularly those filmed from a helmet-cam. Or distance riding videos. Stuff like Stairways to Heaven, Tokyo 2 Osaka, things like that. Feel free to post links to freestyle stuff as well, but personally I'm not nearly as interested in trick videos.

Linky linky?

hairnet I loved that video.

My mom is from NO and I haven't been there since we rescued the grandparents from Katrina. Need to get back ASAP.

I love New Orleans too. I spent a week there around New Years, just riding bikes with a bunch of friends all around the city all day. I really fell in love with the place

Don't think so. Cornering would be scary.

What kind of course is it held on ? Any tight / sharp turns ? I suppose if it were held on a course with wide sweeping turns it would be ok. Kinda like a track.

I bet they have to slow down a bunch to negociate it.
