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)

What do you do? OT

This is the thread where you post what your real job is. We know were all cyclists, but most of us have another job that doesnt center around cycling.

For me, Im a Pantry Chef at this restaurant. http://www.waltzonthesquare.com/
My avatar is the logo for Henckels knives which im a big fan of.

So, what do you do?
