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)

I used to have a bamboo bike. Man, it was sweet. I rode that thing everywhere.
But, you know how it goes, it's the same old story.
F'ing pandas.

My bike is made from 100% local, fair trade, compostable, raw, vegan, post-consumer materials and 10% of the proceeds benefit the charity of your choice.
