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:

http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...4#post12393764

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.

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.
