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)

I almost never go on group rides. Especially on my 'road' bike, on a weekday.

Cool pics, Sumgy. Do you have one of those extra terrestrial creatures to make your bike actually fly, or you just good at bunny hopping?

Joined my friends for the 10th anniversary of the Coaster Brake Challenge. Due to my knee surgery I went on my geares bike but I had fun messing around on my friend's klunker after the action.
