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)

Biking 2400 km down the West Coast

Well, a friend of mine is. Hes riding a 2008 Giant Bowery '72 fixed gear so I thought you guys might like to follow his blog as he rides along.

They'll be riding from Port Angeles, WA down to San Diego, CA and just arrived yesterday, but one of the bikes was delayed at the airport or something.

Anyway:
