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)

OCP: Fixed gear chapter

is there an official OCP group over here? (obsessive compulsive poser)

i have a very strong urge to put something in my rear spokes, and the other day i caught myself putting a sweatshirt in my bag so i'd have a reason to wear it (it wasnt going to be cold at all)

ugh, i need help!

i'd love to put something in my spokes, but i'm not entirely sure it's kosher.... is there a support group for this type of lust?

I've been sitting at work with my pant legs rolled up to mid-calf for the last hour or so... Just feels more natural.

I had a skull and cross bones laced in my wheel a time back. It was badass because it was really an air freshener!

Then it got wet and melted and I was sad. Life goes on.

A friend of mine tackled me the other day and forcefully un-rolled my pant leg, which I'd been wearing up for about 5 hours after getting off my bike.

My girlfriend said, "THANK you!" when he did it, and it turned out it had been bothering them for quite while on some sort of fundemental level to see me with one pant leg rolled up.

Oh well, I make no apologies.

peace,
sam

When I was in High School, the kids who got bussed in from outside the city used to roll their sweatpants up to their knees and then hike their socks up so it looked like they were wearing baseball pants.

My wife does that to me when I sit down on the couch.

Personally I am bothered by having to constantly roll them up and down, so I just leave them up. That way, when I pick my jeans off the floor to put them on in the morning, they are already rolled. Although, don't wash them like that, the roll takes a long time to dry.

No one actually forces me, but I can't tell you how many times the same people ask me why i have my pant leg rolled up.

Also, I always end up washing them rolled and then unrolling them after the first round in the dryer because the cuff is still wet... stupid memory.
