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)

doing cool tricks on a 4000 dollar bike that could be done on a 300 dollar bike does not make them cooler.

I don't think so. Foot retention not necessary since hipsters only go 5 mph due to riding brakeless.

He was saying it would be the perfect hipster bike except for the foot retention. Those straps are useless appendages detracting from the ironically minimalist hipster motif.

That is a badass chopper but can it go fast enough to even worry about foot retention?

And with those boots, he could Fred Flintstone stop a truck.
