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)

As the title says. Even when combing through the general SS/FG picture thread there aren't many 26"ers to be found, post 'em here.

Miyata Pathrunner from 1995 I think:



The pics are from september this year when I used it in a 100km offroad "race" with only SS or FG bikes. As you can see it was wet...



I also have a Miyata Elevation 10000 which is currently being converted to a SSCX bike.

I wish I could use it as a commuter, but that never seems to work, so this is a xc bike 99% of the time.
