Singlespeed madness!

After yesterday's post about fixed bikes, today I'm going to post a video about singlespeed races.
Why? Because the fixies and singlespeed are two worlds that have many things in common, like the love for the simple things and the desire to keep it simple. At the same time, singlespeed races (especially offroad) seem to be in some ways the total opposite of fixed bikes aesthetics. Where fixies are elegant and trendish, singlespeed mountain bikes are exaggerated, colourful and cartoonish. And I mean in a good way.
Have a look at this video and you'll understand what I'm saying:
