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)

Totally SSFG, His Trike is single speed, and the dude interviewing him is riding a typical SS bike!
Awesome story, Thanks Apple!
