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)

Cool, Groningen is nice place. I spent 3 days there in an old hospital a couple of years ago when my old band was on tour. Pretty little town, lots of nice people, and lots of bikes.

Unless I'm terribly wrong, this is our very own Dave Moulton, a member here, an excellent writer and legendary framebuilder.

Brian may chime in, he's talked to Dave in his blog interview. SUPER cool bloke.
