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)

I admit, this seems a little dumb; however, I know it's part of barista culture to have 'your' tamper that really expresses you. It's really one of the few tools of the art that allows personal expression.

So, if you're a cyclist and use Chris King headsets, this would make sense, I guess.
