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)

Yes, because it wouldn't be worth the damage it would do to my car.

Brian, I'm disappointed. You're capable of so much more than this.

Just because I can, I'm closing this thread.
