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)

This is the Willow Springs Bridge, Dallas, Georgia, built in the 1930's. It was in service to automobile traffic until about five years ago when the modern bridge in the background was built. You can see the Silver Comet Trail below, the longest paved trail in the US.

on black friday we rode up chaney trail to the mt lowe toll road and went thru the mueller tunnel to finally spit out at the mt wilson observatory. over 6000ft of climbing on dirt is straight terrible but the downhill singletrack back to pasadena is ripping.
