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 love that Sizemore. I'm getting really excited for NAHBS this year since it will be 2 miles from my house.

I bought one for my road bike. My neighbor gave me one about a month ago (hes cool like that cus I help him with bike stuff). But I don't think I can keep it. Cut too short.

Meh, sram hate isn't close to that bad (and its usually just bashing on the red fd). SFFixed does have quite a few members that dislike it, but its usually not that big of a deal.

zachary's bikes are always phenomenal.
