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)

Tested out my rack and loaded panniers on my FG today. Rode out to Fort Point right at the edge of the Golden Gate bridge. My knees do not approve of this test... lower gearing definitely needed for loaded FG touring. Still a fun day.

I rode for about 4-5 hours in the rain. Got caught in a few downpours, and the bike needed a pretty good cleaning after, but it was a fun day.

My science project. It's not worth much or very fancy, but I have fun riding it, putting stickers on it, and trying new parts with it.
