Check out this quote that’s over a hundred years old:
I still feel that varable 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, L’Équipe article of 1902
When I picked up my bike at Mellow Velo on Saturday, David had replaced a few parts and the bike rode MUCH better. Could it have been the new 44T chainwheel, the Japanese 1/8″ chain and pedals or this?
I love how silent a fixie runs and how efficiently it transfers power to the wheels. With the new 44T chainwheel I made it up the hill to my Casa Monte Frio.
Nice editing with the music.
