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)

thanks tomity.

does anyone know if any cable channels follow keirin? it would be really fun to get into, but i think it might be hard, even if you're willing to subject yourself to television ownership.
