The Age 40+ Singlespeed & Fixed Gear Thread
This thread provides a focal point for those of us older SS & FG aficionados to post our experiences, questions, perspectives and ideas specific to our age that are different than those of our younger bretheren. This thread was originally proposed for age 50+, however, many 40+ members expressed interest, such that this thread has been started at 40+. Some of the topics that might be posted are:
1) Experiences in SS & FG prior to 1990 and going back as far as the 1950s.
2) Classic and Vintage SS & FG bikes, including ideas on restoration of them and identification.
3) Use of SS & FG bikes for training and health. Also, health issues that affect older riders and how to factor them into bike setup.
I would hope that this thread could maintain a higher level of civility and relevance than many of the normal threads in this forum, and open this forum up to more diversity.
Anyways, I welcome you one and all, and hope to see strong enough interest to maintain this thread as a sticky.
