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)

This is stuff legends are made of: the first old kids single speed. Can we sticky this? Maybe call it "The old kids singlespeed thread"?

I wish there was a thread right at the top of the forum where everyone posts pics of their bikes. That would be very convenient.

Anybody with a drop of bike handling sskills does not need a rear brake, and will not get chucked over the bars.
