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 suppose it's useful for getting the jump on your opponent if you've got the rear in a match sprint.

... That is, if your local velodrome is in the woods.

I do. I hunt, and I also ride. However, my use of camo is restricted to when I'm actually in the act of hunting. I think it's tacky as hell to wear as an every-day sort of thing. I know you're not stereotyping all hunters as right-wing hillbillies...right?

That IS probably the idea behind the wheel design. Fixed gear riding is associated with urban youth, while hunting is not. This wheel is still hip (aerospoke), but ironic and non-conformist (camo). That is, until everyone has one.

I think it is dumb, really dumb. When one of those records break, you are looking at some serious pain/cuts.

of course it's dumb - for that reason, among others. and crosswinds must suck hugely.

doesn't mean i don't like it.

I normally don't post anything in here, but this was worth it. Are those bars off a kids bike? The top tube brake lever behind the top tube pad is nice, too.

In some cities, cops are actually ticketing brakless bikes/bikers ... ( purdy sure by law, its manditory erverywhere... just not enforced. ) There must be a "gray area" on where & how they need be mounted ...

BTW : Purdy sure, thats a campy delta, not so much a brake ( as in, able to STOP a bike ) but a " speed moduletor " ( alows you, to scrub SOME speed. )

To protect his top tube from his bars. Risers can hit it too because the head tube is not vertical.

Looks like the stem could hit, slight negative slope to it. Then again, with all the other crap on there, I may be just a bit to optimistic.

ohh haha, i just got one, it was a toss up between that and a cadillac, but for some reason three six mafia songs wouldn't stop going through my head when i entertained the idea of buying a cadillac...

Yeah, I read about that in bicycling like 3 months ago, it seemed kinda silly, since it adds weight to the bikes.... 30% increase in speed versus an extra pound.... seems kinda moot.
