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've always found it strange how some people are prepared to pay $5 to put pictures of a total stranger's bike on FGG. I just don't get it......

Price super firm on this, it's so tricked out and people have been emailing me like crazy about it for a month, but I've been out of town, so time to jump on this.

Don't hate on this dude. I used to talk to him everyday. He's the nicest, most interesting person I've ever met, not to mention the smartest. Dude's been inventing **** forever. I bet you 50 bucks you can't even ride that ****ing bike.

Thanks for doing something amazing with your life and your free time.
