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)

Who did I see on Ocean Drive Today?

I was on my way to Fort Adams and noticed someone riding a red and black SE Lager. It was around noon.

I thought that was a requirement for ownership?

Hmm, jokes aside, maybe it should be.

You have to be a member of BF before owning a fixed gear? That's terrible. What a horrible bunch we would all be.

i'm not sure if the ratio of hipsters to conservative fixed gear riders would change all that much, actually. but everyone would gain a feeling of superiority and suddenly think they know what they're talking about. this is the internets, after all!
