    Wheels

    My bike got stolen and the shop owner is hooking me up with some stuff and now I need some wheels. I want low gears hopefully 9, 10, or 11T for semi cheap. Any suggestions? I was thinking about the Demolition anorexia and then a cheaper front.

    The anorexia is a pretty good hub, but the back wheel isn't entirely chrome if you're worried about breaking power.

    Alright. Breaking doesnt matter much becasue I ride mostly street and not that good at it. Are there any other good deals for pairs of wheels?

    Lyrics - Broken Man


    Deep in the soul of a man who's seen it all - he stands alone with borrowed time
    dealing with two, nothing's new but they look at you with broken backs and bleeding minds
    well I don't know even though they tell me so
    you'll be the one who walks the line
    standing tall, they're so fragile
    but they always find you when you hide

    cause you're a broken man, in a broken land
    cause you're a broken man, in a broken land
    and don't they wish they were blessed like you

    the struggle inside your mind is a waste of time - your purest thoughts evaporate
    dark clouds reveal how you feel in your idle time - your own tail becomes the bait
    you don't know even though your blood flows
    destroy yourself, you're the one you hate
    standing tall, they're so fragile
    but they always get you when you're late

    cause you're a broken man, in a broken land
    cause you're a broken man, in a broken land
    and don't they wish they were blessed like you

    standing tall they look so small with the world upon their shoulders
    but a broken man on broken land looks far beyond his brothers
    break for the sun you're the one, the chosen one, your time is up your time is due
    cracked like a whip from the hand of a broken man to find out that he's just like you
    but you've seen it all, in your mind you've seen it all, you've built it up and they made it fall
    because you're killing yourself and you're so fragile
    but they cannot crush you if you don't crawl

    now I'm a broken man, in a broken land
    now I'm a broken man, in a broken land
    now I'm a broken man, in a broken land
    and don't they wish they were blessed like you
    and don't they wish they were blessed like you
    and don't they wish they were blessed like you
    and don't they wish they were blessed like you
    and don't they wish they were blessed like you

    Nope. But Beerman's not that great, he's just a guy with a bike, and he happens to be good at what he enjoys.

    I don't listen to CoC. I am, however, listening to this:

    WILLIAM SHATNER
    I Can't Get Behind That
    William Shatner/Henry Rollins

    BILL: Let's go. Ready? From the top...
    BILL: My favorite shows on TV have twelve minutes of advertising. I can't get behind that kind of time!
    ROLLINS: Eat quickly. Drive faster. Make more money now! I can't get behind that.
    BILL: My kids say: He said to me, and I'm like... and he's like... and she's like...
    ROLLINS: It's all... He's all... She's all...
    BILL: I can't get behind that kind of like, English!
    BILL: That'll be six to eight weeks before delivery.
    ROLLINS: The rising oceans, the warming temperatures!
    BILL: The dying polar bears--no, tigers--in fifty years!
    ROLLINS: Rising poison in the air and water!
    BILL: I can't understand why the price of gas suddenly rises when oil goes up...
    ROLLINS: ...but takes months to go down long after oil falls!
    BILL: I can't get behind any of that!
    BILL: I can't get behind the Gods, who are more vengeful, angry, and dangerous if you don't believe in them!
    ROLLINS: Why can't all these Gods just get along? I mean, they're omnipotent and omnipresent, what's the problem?
    BILL: What's the problem?
    BILL: What about the men who say 'Do as I do. Believe in what I say, for your own good, or I'll kill you!' I can't get behind that!
    ROLLINS: I can't get behind that! Everybody knows everything about all of us!
    BILL: That's too much knowledge!
    BOTH: I can't get behind that!
    BILL: Yeah! And what about student drivers using my streets to learn? If you learn to play the drums you got to go to a studio! Go to a parking lot, for God's sake! Why are you jeopardizing my life? I can't get behind a student driver!
    ROLLINS: I can't behind a driver who drives like a student driver! If you're going to drive an urban assault vehicle then get off the phone and keep your eyes on the road!
    ROLLINS: Lifetime guarantee?
    BILL: Who's lifetime? Not mine! I haven't that much time left. Let's make it yours. Everybody's got a longer life than me!
    BILL: The leaf blowers, is there anything more futile?
    ROLLINS: Car alarms.
    BILL: Clap off.
    ROLLINS: Clap on.
    BILL: Spam.
    ROLLINS: Size matters.
    BILL: No, it doesn't!
    ROLLINS: Yes, it does!
    BILL: No, it doesn't.
    ROLLINS: Yes, it does!
    BILL: No, it doesn't!
    ROLLINS: Yes, it does!
    BILL: No, it doesn't! No, it doesn't!
    ROLLINS: Yes, it does! Yes, it does!
    BILL: My phone rings!
    ROLLINS: Make millions in minutes!
    BILL: It's a computer!
    ROLLINS: Lose inches in hours!
    BILL: Leave me the Hell alone!
    ROLLINS: Eat more! Spend less!
    BILL: The Colonel is breakdancing! Give me a break!
    ROLLINS: Credit terms raised!
    BILL: I can't get behind any of that!
    BILL: I can't get behind so-called singers that can't carry a tune, get paid for talking, how easy is that? Well, maybe I could get behind that!
    ROLLINS: Well, I can't! If you have to fix it with a computer: quantized, pitch corrected, and overly inspected, then you can't do it, and I can't get behind that!
    BILL: I--can't--get behind--a fat ass!
    ROLLINS: Yeah, Bill, can you turn around and do one more?
    BILL: Always can do one more.
    ROLLINS: Let's hit it!

    Now that's philosophical.
