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)

Moi! Funland.

Huava (I can say it, but not sure about the spelling) ride... Sweet colors. How's Helsinki for bikes? If I remember well enough, it is great. Big scene for SS there?

Hi

I just could not get the hub to stay in place without chain tugs, maybe it's down to my evil nasty driving habits. Anyhow, they keep the rear wheel in position quite nicely

oh if anyone's interested in buying one of those miche posts, I have one, but it's just too short for my needs. They do look sweet though and that extra little allen screw on the clamp is a really nice idea that works well.

Here's mine.

My friend gave this bike to me for free. I rode it a few time ... but I wasn't very impressed because I thought it was too sluggish when compared with my other bikes. I converted it to a fixie, and now this is my favorite bike.

Messenger bike.. Old Bianchi track frame, powdercoated. The original fork is replaced with a new one, for more relaxed steering.

I liked SS so much that I just had to run out and get a SS specific frame (horizontals). And after much parts swapping and what-not, here is my ride for 2004:
