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)

Yeah I saw the fork and couldn't even really articulate what was going on there.

Maybe it provides shock absorption or something.

My gosh that would be hilarious to see. They probably do it to strike up conversations for sharing the gospel message. Or that's probably what they tell their mission leaders
