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)

Nah, it was on july 15 I think. Also I broke my wrist about mid-june (skateboarding, woo hoo!) so I rode 70 miles, on a 40 x 14 fixed gear bike, with a cast on my right arm, and I finished in roughly 4 hours NOW WHAT

The ride started at 7 or 7:30 AM and I finished at 11:15 AM
