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)

Music reminds me of the soundtrack from the ABC's of Sex for Trainables.

I thought it was kind of cool...did someone filmed for you or did you had set the camera up yourself?

And beach and bike ride is a winning combo.

Freakin' sick!

I know nothing about riding offroad, and I'm assuming my 700x23 tires are to go nowhere near a dirt trail. I'll have to look into some stuff before I buy a set that I could use out here. Maybe by next spring

Rudi, actually, it is entirely possible to ride some dirt with 23's. I was on a Coast to Coast UK ride and some of the route had unexpected off-roading. Some crushed gravel and dirt/sand. We faired quite well for the 20 miles involved, no flats. However I wouldn't recommend it for longer trips or any routes that involve anything larger than small gravel.

You should call it the Bow legged wonder Cyclist......or Borefest USA..the story of a bow legged tool who's taste in music is poor at best.


Where on the east coast is it?

cool actually.

I guess I shouldn't judge based on two grumpy dudes from Jersey. I'd be grumpy if I stayed too.
