Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

there seems to be a war going on messenger couture (longish)

it appears that you have to prove your worth for riding a bike no matter who you are.

You need help. Get help.

Not on line help.

Like doctor help.

Talk to someone.

A real someone.

Like Mom, Dad.. etc.

And avoid high powered rifles and tall towers.

yep..You people on the east coast screw up our clock...While we are eating dinner, you are watching bedtime news.maybe.. but, really stay up all night at our forum and watch the world turn respective to their own clocks. bringing about their interests in our forum..helping to keep me awake..
Rancid..I was once in Hawaii while my wife was taking a class in Europe...Easy to remember when it is convenient to call her...She was 12 hours ahead of your Hawaii time...easy to know when not to call...

I used to love getting home and drinking while everyone was getting to work and starting to post.

This place does get pretty dull about 5am Central US Time...
