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 drove up to Southeast Tennessee today to explore the Hiawassee River and surrounding area.






A six mile climb to get to the top of Buc Bald with 360 panoramic views.

Beautiful bike and pic!

How do you like the elliptical chainring? I am of the minority where I like the old biopace rings. How does it ride?

Pretty sure that's just lens distortion.

Sorry to confuse, I was just goofing because that is only lens distortion. I am such a simpleton that, until last week, I didn't even know non-circular chainrings were a thing, let alone the advanced biopace rings you mention. For better perspective here is my ride into the capitol today. This is the drinking fountain at the base of the hill, which I think is cute. DC is a nice city to cruise around: some hills, traffic isn't mean, plenty of fun stuff to see. Rode 25 miles in but then I took the train back out, like a coward. Today was my first day trying out bmx pedals+straps, not sure when I'll be using them going forward but they are comfy.

LOL 😂😂

No worries, and I am a simpleton when it comes to camera distortion apparently. Nice bike. I have the BMX pedals and strap combo on one of my rigs and I actually like it.
