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)

Rising gas prices = Riding brakeless

Cant wait for this mofo to hit 3$/L in the next 5-10 years, then I can finally retire the brake

What? Do I even want to ask why having a brake is at all related to gas prices?

I'm guessing it's some super-convoluted utopian delusion where nobody drives cars so he doesn't have to worry about getting run over.

Included in that delusion is the dangerous assumption that the only thing rising fuels costs will effect is the cost of driving.
