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)

Went grocery shopping with it today and I'm used to sizing up what I can/can't carry with my old bag, gonna have to relearn what I can buy now(Used to be only able to shop for 2-3 days at a time).

Bought these since I'm gonna swap to a 3-bolt on my track and touring bike(once I build it).

Once you get a rear rack with basket, you will never look back .
