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)

Sometimes I hate that I like music like that. Other times it gets thrown into an awesome video and I'm in awe.

Does anyone else feel a strong urge to get a job in Scotland?

YES! And turned into a full-on tarck pretzel. Just a pile of banged up NJS frame, crushed Turbo saddle and a puddle of electric lime Oury grips. Feetbelts scattered about and B43s shaped like frowns.

I'm pretty sure 1:28 and 3:45 would have the same result.

If you even have to ask that question you're obviously not familiar with the traditional job interview process in Scotland.
