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)

hey look everyone, I've got a new avatar!!!

I was going to post this in the more relevant "No Break is for Hipsters #2" thread, but of all the great injustices of this world, it looks like it's been canned! Unbelievable.
