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)

Maybe it's my cynical nature, but I couldn't get past the asinine term "fixie chicks".

Seriously?

Sorry man.

eh...i rage'd at quite a few points in that article.

people who ride bikes for fashion reasons are dults. in fact, i laugh every time people criticize the materialism of the mainstream and then gloat over their bike schwag.

Not exactly self-aggrandizing, but 'saluting' one's self seems a little over the top to me.

I don't often post here, but the title caught my eye.

I briefly dated a fixie chick. We could talk about bikes all day/night long, but I'm just not a fixed type of guy.

A wee bit sad ...

Fixie Chicks are not rational people.
But I salute them, us (although we resent being classified as a group).
I salute our choice of elegance over common sense.
I salute our intrusion on a predominantly male world.
I salute the importance we attach to one small cog.
I salute our ragged beauty. And, as a Fixie Chick,
I swear and aver I will not roll my pantleg down.
