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)

The FG Enthusiass (FGE) needs your help

I'm going to pass out flyers at the next SF critical mass but was wondering if anyone in other states that have a lot of fixed riders would be willing to pass out flyers if i mailed them to you by the next CM. Let me know.

Thanks guys.

I'd pass them out in Cinci, but I don't treally know any cyclists. I plan on meeting some next month but they'll probably shun me and my lack of stretchy things on my bottom.

What about a pdf? We could print them out on our own then, and save you some cash.

That said, I'll do whatever I can to further the cause of flirting with hot boys, er, cycling.

How about you posting on Fixed Gear Gallery Forums? I'm sure those guys want to show off their bikes and their impressive phsiyques as much as possible.

I'd really enjoy a picture of Dennis posing with his bike. That guy is the best!

Critical Mass is this Friday, at Fountain Square. You won't find a square inch of lycra there.

Hey guys, thank you all for offering to help. It's been a busy week and i finally finished the flyer tonight. For those of you who are willing to print some out and pass them out at the Critical mass in your city please PM me with your email address and i will email you a photoshop file with the flyer. There are 6 flyers per page that way you won't waste too much paper. Thanks guys!
