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 is just a knock on your door to a house they already own.
Good post. Also, I am probably going to steal your metaphor in that last sentence sometime.

I'm not sure about Nike the corporation but anyone I've ever met who works(ed) at Nike has been pretty darn rad.

Did you ever see that episode of Friends where Chandler said that he could stop making fun of people if he wanted to and then Ross wore those leather pants on a date and it looked like Chandler's head would explode for want of fun-making? That's sort of how this thread, sans-Dutret, makes me feel.

So the fixie thing is now no longer fashioable.

That means thousands of cheap track bikes on e-bay.

Yoray for sweatshop operating capitalist imperialist f**kers!

I actually hope this bike gets really popular so Tyler stops selling people who don't know anything weird lacing patterns on his wheels.
