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 like it quite a lot; more than my Ionos. I actually only bought my Ionos to see what else is out there after forgetting my helium back in the bay area when I moved down here for grad school; one of those moments when you thought you packed everything you needed before leaving, only to find out you forgot something when you arrive. It turned out my helium conformed to my head better than the ionos, so I ended up buying another down here.

The Rollsys band broke on my Lazer 02 at the forehead after about a year, so be gentle.

Nice and cheap, I'm thinking about stepping it up to the Ionos this summer though. I like the look of the Bern helmet but I can't help but feel it looks very hipsterish.
