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)

fixing for compliments

so a friend of mine and i were doing the whole "ride to the gas station drunk 'cause we're out of something and we need it right now" routine last night and she kept looking over at me while i was riding. (ps. i love my new (to me) cannondale track bike. it's pure sex). anyway, i asked her why she kept looking at me and her reply was "you look really slick riding that track bike! it's hot!" Never in my life i've been called "slick" or "hot" while on a bike. usually it's the opposite, like, "ew, i can see your crack... why don't you let me ride in front for a while".

anyway, so that's the secret. ride a fixie with girls and they'll think you're slick.

Oh damn, she was hitting on you! Track bikes are chick magnets, clearly.

given your inebriated state, is it possible that you misunderstood her? for example, in all actuality, she may have said, "you look like a dick riding that track bike... sot!"
