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)

Ehh I give this one points for the practical, non sexy ergo bars. It'd be so much worse with b123's on a deep drop stem with pink ourys on the shoulders.

I love those GT track frames. If only I could find one large enough... Seems nobody wants to part with 'em.

There are just so many things wrong with that bike, but basically it's totally unrideable.

a unrideable bike would be one with out a chain or maybe one with a broken derailer.

that bike is totally ridable.

It'd be good for skids.....if it had clips. Those hometrainer tyres have very little grip and great wear, on smooth surfaces.

And the left hand drive bike....It looks like he just switched the cranks over with the pedals attached.

yeah, but he had to have ridden the bike to those locations somehow, unless he's brought superficial noobery to a whole new level and drove it to each place

I'd say he rode with the clips under the pedals thinking 'wtf is wrong'

This isn't my find-- I found the link in the BSNYC comments:

It's pretty astonishing. Anybody know what that front lacing style is called?
