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)

Woke up real early and climbed tam this morning. On dirt. Way better than road. Clear day, but you still can't see the top.

It's the genesis, I love the helmet but honestly I wouldn't have gotten it had I realized I couldn't keep my sunglasses in the air vents... It is slim and has a light in the rear which is nice.

Good to know. I don't wear glasses do that's no problem. I was looking at the lazer 02. The genesis is expensive
