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... your GITANE is famous

it's his left. if he had a left side drive or the right side rolled up as well, i'd say it's sensible. but....no.

MLproject, I like the chenelle and crossbones in the background. I think I am noticing a recurring motif here. (vuitton, chenelle).

Why get it covered? If it was important to you then it should still hold relevance today no matter what your lifestyle is. At least that is how i feel about mine.
