Fixed gear commuters, send me your pix!

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)

Fixed gear commuters, send me your pix!

Hey all fixed gear commuters: Do you want your bike on a directory of fixed gear commuter bicycles that I am building? Please send clear pictures and a description to fixedgearcommuter@gmail.com and I will include them and give you the URL when it is all done.

Take care!

i commute on my bike, but it's not any different from how it would be if i didn't.

I strap whatever i need to my back.

Though I've been thinking about getting a clip on rear fender for rainy days.

the GT in that bums me out. more power to the rider for using in a very functional manner, but those bikes look waaayyy cooler all speeded out. that said, i'm just really jealous.
