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)

2014 Post Your SS or FG megathread!

This is a continuation of this thread:

And I still ride fixed, just in Florida instead of Indiana, and in a town so small that I think I'm the only FG rider in town.

. He who fights with monsters might take care lest he thereby become a monster. And if you gaze for long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you.- Fredrick Nietzsche

Kinda wish i'd gotten a white frame because i like the gold anodized but it sorta clashes with my orange paint. If it were tangerine (tt pro) i might be onto something. And yes, i did cut down that steerer since.

Sorry 'bout the instagram. But here's the love of my lyfe.

Also should mention that the good folks at Super Champion built this up for me. Best LBS ever.
