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)

Sounds like a rip-off of Graeme Obree's bike. As long as you're not going to race it it sounds like a cool idea to me. Any UCI event and most national or local ones probably wont let you ride it though (in which case give it to me ).
