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)

Ok. Let's see some British fixed bikes.

Raleigh Pro Track

Heres my much abused 72 Raleigh Professional Track bike. Been busted and repaired a few times, hence the black paint and non-matching (but damn well made) Witcomb Fork.



Original paint work was lovely. The 70s paint jobs on these raleighs was gorgeous. It should look like this: https://www.firstflightbikes.com/RaleighTrack.htm

Negative, Australia gets a bye as long as Velocity is still the shizz. And I don't even like deep V's, but I keep an extra set of unbuilt aeroheads around just in case.

You forgot to mention the awesomeness of their Olympic track team.

I was just teasing the Aussies. The Canadians, however do suck wallaby balls!

"Canada is a country where everyone in the band gets their own microphone"

A friend of mine said that like 2 years ago, and I'm still trying to figure out why it's so right.
