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)

Pig Champion is Dead

I know that this has nothing to do with fixed-gears, but yeah, I figure the people in here are the only ones on this board who'd really care.

I wish I had my Poison Idea records here with me at work.

Sad news.

I still remember hearing "Feel the Darkness" for the first time. And it still blows me away.
