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)

Nice.. notice how the brakes apply to the tire, not the rim.

Check out the Surly Pugsley. That frame is a ****ing beast.

The interchangeable front and rear wheels (for a second backup gearing) blow my mind.

A little testy are we? If you actually looked at what I wrote you can see that I never insulted the owner of the bike, but thank you for your kind words.

His feet cant reach the pedals when sitting on the saddle so its no problem.
His legs may just dangle.

Bikes like that always remind of that scene on the simpsons when that really tall guy is driving in the bug and nelson laughs at him...

Besides though stickers, his everyday work bike seems to be in pristine condition. Thats odd.
(I didnt feel the need to address that seat height/1" riser dilema)

Is cleaning the bike for a photo shoot illegal?

I'm trying to picture a person riding that and I can't... how can you have that long legs (and arms)?


Edit: BTW, the bike rocks.

i think he meant that there do not appear to be any scratches of any kind any place where there aren't stickers. *Somewhat* unusual for a "work" bike.
