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)

Dude, I'm below average for NBA . I'm 6'5" while most teams average like about 6'6"-6'7". My other bike has much more dramatic saddle to bar drop, but the bike looks tiny with me on it

New bar tape


Old bar tape


I love having hoods and road drops. Hand positions to the max. More people need to be doing this.

This is an old pic of my bike. The seat tube decals have come off and it could probably use a repaint about now but it still rides as good as ever.
