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 act of texting automatically removes 10 I.Q. points,” said a flaming ******, who stayed up all night trying to think of a clever catch-phrase to use for this interview. Sadly, this was the best he could come up with. We here at the New York Times are inclined to suggest that he was texting when he came up with this ridiculous statement, but have decided against it, as it would lend credence to his spurious and unfounded assertion.

I see a guy riding a bike in an otherwise car crowded city. Time to grow up kids, you're starting to get worse than the roadies.
