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)

Mythbusters Singlespeed

I was watching Mythbusters, the pole-vault car episode, and here's some video of Tory taking a digger on his coastie. He doesn't get too banged up, but it looks like it didn't feel good.

The myth that they can get through an episode without blowing something up or getting hurt while doing something crazy.

It was indeed a myth.

I just saw that episode earlier today. I think that was definitely one of misshaps where you don't realize how hurt you are for a good 15 minutes or so. Looks like his head hit the ground pretty hard.

And yeah, that show is the best. Plus, Carrie in all pictures other than that one is pretty cute.
