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)

These are called Gravity Bikes. I first heard about them during the Maryhill Festival of Speed (primarily a longboarding event). They're just designed to go fast downhill. I'm guessing they can be pretty fun...
