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 call bullshiit.

When you race for "pinks" you don't strip all the parts off the frame and give just that frame to the winner.

Dude who won the bike could've stripped the bike down to the frame?

Rule for Pink Alleycats: You must weld the frames you win together. Man with the tallest bike has the greatest glory.
