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)

Looks to me like it's set up for tricks with the front and rear pegs and all.

Lets hope that jonasaurus never makes another post on this forum ever again, so that that single post can become a sacred post of FG/SS perfection. The smallest of posters summing up what the most prolific have spent years trying to achieve and yet always finding that perfection illusively slips through their fingers, the more they try, the harder it becomes.

Even the likes of the all knowing Scrodzilla will be humbled by the sheer majesty that had come and went. Like the falling of the gentle Sakura in a mid spring breeze, or the whine of the せみ that brews it's potential for so many years before releasing itself upon the world in a short blaze of triumphant glory.

All shall see.

All shall know.

All shall die.

For this is the mantra of the brakeless riding few.
