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)

I'm a librarian, specifically, I catalogue books for libraries (we're a library supply firm). As it happens, I spend most of my time fixing up the cockups made by the American Library of Congress - seriously guys, lift your game.
