A great bike quote

September 24, 2009

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

      I can see you in a thrash metal band, I think you’d play bass.
