International Single Speed day

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)

Do fix gears qualify for this thread? The fix gear of my logo now sports a red fork to match yours. I like.

And - do you have tire clearance to wheelie and spin the handlebars?

In honor of ISSD I'm attacking some fire roads I usually use my geared bike for, on my trusty ss Cross Check. There may be some walking, but it's worth the sacrifice in honor of this hallowed day...
