second faq, first sentence.

"The bicycle ridden on the track is different from the one ridden on the road, and it is one of the simplest and most beautifully designed machines in the world."
I don't think it's a very beautiful sentence at all. It sounds kind of awkward to me, to tell you the truth.

December 2005 Harper's has a memoir by Scott Korb, "All That I Have Is Yours", with some rather eloquent comments on fixed gear riding. Good read in general. It's off news stands, but should be in libraries.

humanc- were you posting drunk again? :D
In an effort to make that sentence prettier I ran it through babelfish and translated it to french
La bicyclette montée sur la voie est différente de celle montée sur la route, et elle est l'une des machines les plus simples et le plus admirablement conçues dans le monde.
The bicycle assembled on the way is different from that assembled on the road, and it is one of the simplest machines and most admirably conceived in the world.
ahh... much better.
