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)

Who said Dallas sucks for ss/fg?

Here's some pics from our weekly Monday night ride; last night churned out over 50 people. It was fun as hell with some great riders and some very cool bikes. If you came out last night and have pics, make sure to submit them here: https://pedallas.com/drop

You can check pics and videos from other Dallas rides at www.pedallas.com

(sorry for weak quality pics, you get the idea)

hahah hilarious! No, but as a matter of fact, we went to a bar afterwards on exposition and they let us pile our bikes in there. Special was $2 PBR.

And naynay, the offer's always on the table if you care to ride my ss 29er.

This has to be more Ironic than the tattoos on some of the people in that picture. The one guy who clearly doesn't follow the crowd is the one that's lost? as opposed to the rest of the kids wearing the fixie-hipster uniforms all trying to fit in by dressing alike and riding the same style of bike . . . HILARIOUS!

instead of trying to find something ironic, try taking a joke.
