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)

Toms => CHECK



I could give him skinny jeans but I'm up to my neck in work...

Anyone want a specific background added to it?

I personally love photoshop tennis!
