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)

Rear tire might actually grab in loose snow... but couldn't imagine the buildup that the design would cause. Toss some carbide studs on the wheels and then it might be way fun.
