If you're visiting this blog, you're probably at least slightly interested in singlespeed and fixed gear bicycles. If so, I invite you to visit a new site that I recently launched, will no doubt be a constant work-in-progress, but the main theme is to get as many people as possible involved in contributing stories, photos, and reviews related to singlespeed and fixed gear bicycles. Info on upcoming singlespeed and fixed gear events is also welcomed.

If you're interested in contributing stories or photos, please send sample URL's and/or photos to me at thirtyfourtwenty [at]
