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)

Someone put a lot of money in that bike, but it turned out a bit like washing the dog in Perrier.

The fairing is the problem. why would anyone do that to a bicycle, and themselves for that matter?

Guys, let's not fight.



[h=3]"The fairing is key. Everything is behind it except your head, so you are able to see over it, not through it. (it's an effective shield against bugs, rain, and cold air, too.)"
- Ed Pavelka, Bicycling Magazine's Complete Book of Road Cycling Skills (Bicycling Magazine, Rodale Press, Inc., 1998)
