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)

Clothes will make you a Fred.

Considering there are no brakes on the rig, you won't be fast or a Fred for long.

It's a nice looking bike, but making it fast is up to you.

That bike will make you sexy by association. just being on it will make you attractive, even if you have stickers on your forehead and dreads

Danger, fellow poster. Do not poke the dragon if you have no shield.
