Single Speed comes out of hibernation

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)

Single Speed comes out of hibernation

With the trails being more bike and hike right now because of the warmer temps and melting snow. It was time to dust off the Single Speed and go play out on the roads.

Of all the dentist's fancy bikes out there in the wild, none are able to make me as excited as spotting a 2001 that's still ridden. Coming in second and third are y-foils and softrides respectively.
I love it when I see these bikes are fitted with modern componentry.

Thanks ! I have two Zipp's and use them on a regular basis, although the one set-up as a TT bike gets used more than the Single Speed.
