The dude in this vid with the all black focale 44 fixed gear and the bull horns, tried to blaze me off up the hill from the central bar to the top of gateshead tonight on my way home from work. He barged past me real aggressively from way behind when I'd been stopped at the lights. Has he never heard that it's easier to climb a hill with gears. By the time I reached the top of the hill he was so far behind me he may as well have been a where's wally character. Better luck next time bro.
Speaking of single speed, the clocks are about to change, the roads are greasy and it's wet 75% of the time. It might be the month to fire up my winter bike up and see about a single speed rematch. I'm gonna rock free wheel, guards and 2 brakes on my Bareknuckle this year, add in a helmet and I'll be the height of uncool for the all the flatcapped and bespectacled fixed dudes to laugh at. Practicality does come at a cost in street cred.
