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)

FGFS? How about SBFS!

Stationary bike freestyle is going to be the new thing on the scene. Mad skills.

International Organization Jackie Spinning Championship?
It's like the gymnastics of the pommel horse + the (manly) outfits of figure skating + ...stationary biking?

I bet they get lots of ladies.

These guys saw the FGFS videos up on the web and figured they could take it to the next level.

Sadly... I find myself more enthralled watching "jackie spinning" than any "FGFS". The flair just draws me in... and I can't help but stay for the one-legged pedalling. Call me crazy.
