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)

If it gets ridden and is loved by its owner, it is a good bike. A little smaller saddle and bars that didn't come back as much, and it would be fine by me.

Just think of how much longer your tires will last since you can wear them down evenly though.

Someone should do a version that accepts motorcycle tires...and then sell the tires to sport bike owners so they can show everyone their worn chicken strips.
