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)

lulz, bikedick sounds more like something you have to explain to someone after you failed to perform.

Cause you rode over there, you know. And you got the bikedick.

It happens.

not the worst video ever, decent edit and camera work, and the music was obviously not trying to show how hard they were, because it sounded like it belonged on 500 days of summer soundtrack

either way, the country roads looked pretty fun to bike on, but I'd be terrified to ride with that asian hipster since he apparently can't ride in a straight line

holy vignette batman.

Pretty cool vid. I like seeing vids like these of people just riding for the joy/scenery.

But they need better bars and helmets!
