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)

brakeless ladies

i swear, riding brakeless has got to be the single most appealing attribute a lady could have.

Appealing enough....so long as she's wearing a helmet. I say a front-braked fixie is equally an appealing vehicle for a woman.

Are coaster brakes included? I love a girl who rides an old cruiser. Seriously, I do. When we go riding just give us some trucker hats & white belts & call us hipsters!

Are coaster brakes included, indeed? The fact that SBL rides a coastie should be proof enough.

any girl who will ride a bike is a keeper in my book. riding fixed would just be a plus.

I don't know. A woman that rides lugged steel (with out without brakes) is way up there.

Yeah, a girl riding a lugged steel bike always turns me head... Jesus!

You know, this thread is getting pretty dorky. It's just a step below some comic book dorks talking about which character is the hottest.

Too funny.
Any woman who spends more time exercising than on her hair is a keeper.

Shucks, Hammye! ----- Actually, two bikes: lugged Schwinn coaster (you guys have seen this one, right?), and lugged Fuji fixed. I still need to post pictures of this one. Both-no hand brakes.

On a side note-skidding on icy snow is indescribably fun! (it's my first winter riding fixed)

why not? they could cross breed and have offspring that's amphibious. sort of like a frog. As far as brakeless chicks go, I agree. They're in the same category as women who smoke Marlboro Reds and can tie double heart knots with a cherry stem in their mouth. Skills.
