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)

Cornering must be tough. Can you imagine the pedal strike? But on a high note...there doesn't seem to be any toe overlap!

now i'm really confused. is it a sex toy or a legitimate means of transportation? that photo and the website in general makes it hard to tell.

it kinda makes me a little angry to tell you the truth. it's like a crappy extenstion of a crappy personality. just knowing that there is someone out there who put this together for the sole purpose of trying to get attention is maddening. he's probably the same guy who spills beer at your party, hits on your girlfriend, throws up in your toilet and then makes the neighbors call the cops.
