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)

Platform Pedal Spike Delete

Spike on platform bad for skidz. Mashing slowed down by feet correction, also destroying the soles of my shoes.




Shaved.

FAIL.
Utterly speechless at this vulgar backwash of trends splashing around the toilet bowl of youth.
