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)

I once made a christmas ornament from a crackerjack box cut into a star and wrapped in tinfoil. The hanger thing I just poked through the top of one of the peaks.

I have these long screw on spikes that came with a set of speakers my brother got - no idea what "speaker" function they serve.
But they fit perfectly in my front brake hole.

Google says they're spiked speaker feet.
Cool, I guess.
