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)

I picture each one of you as someone I once knew in High School. TMonk is this 120lb black kid that I sat next to in 11th grade Economics. Doesn't matter how many pictures you post lol
Here's a recent one of me btw. Playing on my phone in nature...it just does something for my soul.

I just stumbled upon this thread and think it is a great idea. Like others have commented, I had a mental picture of what some of you looked like and find it interesting that reality did not match.
Here is my pic, taken yesterday just before a ride.
