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)

What are the gear inches on that thing? I don't know if it's just the way the picture was taken but that chain ring looks HUGE.

Normally how it works, but I gotta get my SSFG street cred out here. Since we're the same height I'm curious to know what you ride (pics?)
