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)

the fact that chris hoy is throwing seated skids in a match sprint gear (90"+) is a testament to his brutal strength when a decent sum of people on here likely throw their nuts to the stem for every skid...

Every trackstand competition in the streets should have a guy with a gun at the side and if you roll backwards, he shoots your bike.

Funny you say this because I see more out shape/fat people riding fixed bikes than fit. I kind of laugh when I see these so called "hipsters" in there tight cloths with a fat belly and just riding their bike in a parking lot!

You think people with a fixed ride would be more in shape due to the cardio workout, that is the main reason I have fixed gear.
