"How old are you"-poll with age ranges

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)

There you go, my friend.

EDIT: Hey y'all, sorry, I made a tiny li'l mistake: if you are on the edge between the categories, then put your vote in the upper category.

For example, if you are 35, put your vote in the 35-40, and not 30-35.



My bad.

I didn't do it out of any malice. I will be 55 one day (at least I hope so!), I am aware of that.

The reason I have created that bracket is purely because of the expected statistical outcome, and the impossibility to have more than 10 poll choices. It's bikeforum's fault.

No, that was the 60's.

Few people in the US actually admit to remembering the 70's

I actually addressed this issue before you posted. Check the first post - and apologies for the confusion.

I think it would be interesting to re-do this poll 30 years from now, to see whether the statistical max at 20-25 has moved over to 50-55, or has this generation slacked off - you know, family, kids, wife...
