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)

No, I like it really...it'd be cool to see something like this take off; so many good ideas like this for bikes fall by the wayside thanks to poor marketing.

that looks like it would make lots of noise and get tons of mud inside. Not to mention it looks like complete garbage.


But if you want one on your bike, who am I to criticize?

It does jack all to protect a chain, but it might be useful for protecting pants.
