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 thought squirrels were like pigeons, isn't there some sort of deal where we stay out of eachother's ways for the most part? poor roadie, i remember seeing those pictures years ago, i don't remember if the guy was injured or not...

happened to me with a rabbit at about 20 mph.
the rabbit took a ride around full circle in my wheel and popped out at the last second before colliding with my fork he seemed okay afterwards and I was scared to death. I always see rabbits on that trail, even the little babies...

I'm experimenting with hamsters on steroids, putting one each in the front and rear wheels and harnessing their power, I get AWD and don't have to pedal.

I think I can put one in the front wheel and then design a tube that goes from the bottom bracket back to the rear hub and harness a team of hamsters on steroids for the rear wheel drive ?

Does that squirrel have legs like Usain Bolt though is the question ? I think I'll need 3 or 4 of them.
