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)

Ok, who?

True.
If you live in a hilly city, risers suck pretty bad though.

I'd like to see that bike with some townie bars on it. Maybe a bell. That said, the bike looks like it's set up in such a way that with drops it would be mad uncomfortable for the rider...

truer words have never been spoken. I certainly kick myself for the risers when I ride any kind of hills.

you'd think he'd mount the tires properly though, after all the investment.

I think most people dont give a damn about where the labels on their tires and valve stems end up.
Except girls who count how many beers theyve had and then blog about it.
