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)

If it was about more leverage, track bikes would have much wider bars than they do.


Wider bars lower your center of gravity.

wider bars make it less twitchy and easier to keep in a straight line on rough terrain no?

Actually, the wide bars are for leverage and control.

I couldn't imagine trying to negotiate a problem/obstacle on my trials bike with road/track drops.

But then you have this guy:
