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)

Typical NY post. No need to mention city in thread title because there's only one publication called Metro, right?

“It was important to me that [the racks] be the same thickness and material as the existing racks — to help identify them as practical bike racks and not just modern art,” Byrne said.

I wouldn't have guessed they were bike racks, no matter what thickness they were.

Okay, I may have only been in NYC for two weeks, but why does it seem that everyone is up on David Byrnes' jock?

edit: Also, Its because of Woody Allen that I discovered the Hungarian Pastry shop. So yummy.

They should put some bars through the middle of it to give you more locking options. That looks like it might be kind of annoying to use with drop bars, although most racks have the potential to be.

Its not for people who lock bikes up.
Its for people who dont who will walk/drive by and say "dang, thats clever" and then imagine the city is a great place to live or that life is better.
