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)

...is it that thing in front of the seat stays, opposite the rear brake? What is that thing?
Yep. It is mounted to the stays and a curved bolt locks through the wheel. Works not bad in conjunction with a cable as well as otherwise one can lift the bike and walk away.

Dynamos are great and I highly recommend using them but if you do use one you really don't need 5 back up lights.
