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)

This pic doesn't do the art justice. There is a tunnel right off shot ant it looks like the train is going to enter it.

As someone who studied art my 1st couple years of college and had some ambitions of making it a career until my future ex-wife convinced me it was no way to make a living - I am pleased to see this thread resurrected...

Yes it does, but how do we know that isn't just a tiny bicycle?

Took my bike with me on a weekend visit to friends and found a buttload of public art within only a couple miles of their house. Just a few...

A tiny bicycle that detailed would be way cooler than an oversized beach chair.

Impressive dancing, but I wish I didn't have to scroll through so many horrendously ugly bikes to get to it.
