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)

Nice vid. Tandem on the track is a good way to break some bones. I have enough of a handful riding one on the street. And, it is rather stressful on the bike itself, as you can see in this video:

@chas58: how come the front wheel goes out first? i would assume the drivetrain or the rear wheel to take most of the stress?

Because the front one had what appears to be a blowout and was running on the rim.
