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)

greetings again from amsterdam! here's another submission to the gallery. i've got some serious overlap issues to iron out. once that happens, it's all good.
And the numberplates on the cars in the last picture certainly look like dutch ones.
Weird.
