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 think I know which one you're talking about. The one with the wizzard to the left of the bike? Dennis must have been downing to many alcoholic beverages whilst away visiting family! Or did you mean the fixed BMX of Johnny Skidmark? That one was weird too! But I like it, weird as it is!!

The BMX was slightly inspirational, yes, alas I was referring to the former.

Johnny Skidmark lives up the street from me. Weird doesn't even begin to touch it. Nice guy though.

I see the guy but what I really want to know is what that is in the fork of the tree that his bike is leaning against...
