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)

My dad rides an old Trek 2300 in the same fluoro yellow and despite the obnoxiously bright paint job, he's had a hit & run before.

lol. Well you know how outside the front door is cold, and then when you walk through it it becomes nice and cozy. That place is known as inside the front door. I could say 玄関, but i thought no one would understand that.
