    My new...er single speed

    Hi all, just wanted to share my new bike with you guys and girls, I bought it about 45 minutes ago off C-List minus wheelset and saddle, going to try and find a blue chain for it and shell be all done

    As Sheldon "Redundancy" Brown would note, as well, it's not complete without a rear brake.

    It is perfectly safe without a rear brake. Only good for ghosting without a chain.

    Once you have bought XBox 360 and Guitar Heroes III, an ss/fixie can't be far behind.

    I personally have never played any games on the X-Box, I bought it for the HD DVD player feature, I also picked up a Playstation 3 for the Blue Ray/Blue disc feature, I never played a game on that either, Im just into movies is all I have it all built up and will be going without rear brakes just to see if I can learn to stop using just the fixed gear and the front brake, I figure if the fixie guys can do it why cant I? worse thing that can happen is I cant do it and I have to go freewheel with a rear brake

    Hey, look at that - some manufacturer of reputable quality bikes has been reduced to imitating Wal-Mart GMC Denalis in an attempt to sell their frames...



    Sorry, couldn't resist. After all, with that blue, that's what it looks like; the GMC Denali as a "real bike."

    Dude! I remember I was sooooo happy to get it that I just ripped the box open and set it up! I was so excited I forgot all about the stickers! Man that was years ago! I need to update my receiver! STAT!
