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)

Relive The Mt Tam Repack Days.... SS Down It With The Kona Humu!




The hard to find Schwinn Excelsior is back... as the Kona Humu! And this sweet ride brings back memories of singlespeed days down Mt. Repack when bell bottom jeans were all the rage and an overheated coaster brake would be "repacked" after every ride down Mt. Tam.

Cool!
