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)

Good idea! I always thought bikes were way too complex.
I'm gonna build a table with one really big leg. Who need the complexity of four? Simplify, man, simplify!
