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)

DC is a nice city to cruise around: some hills, traffic isn't mean, plenty of fun stuff to see. Rode 25 miles in but then I took the train back out, like a coward. Today was my first day trying out bmx pedals+straps, not sure when I'll be using them going forward but they are comfy.

LOL 😂😂

No worries, and I am a simpleton when it comes to camera distortion apparently. Nice bike. I have the BMX pedals and strap combo on one of my rigs and I actually like it.

Went for a ride out to Trenton with Team Cycling Royalty. A great ride, and great people. I finally got a picture of my bike in front of a roll up security door. Proper fixed gear

This is an awesome thread! I love seeing where other people ride their bikes and there are some fantastic pics.
My favorites are SS posing in front of unique Urban architecture. Makes my travels look so boring.....
