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)

A note

There comes a time fixed when all good men must use the red brown fox to jump over cables at the point where bags come into play more so than the compenent use and the actual revolutional type movement of the construct for which the communication was created.

Colors and complaints are not the mainstay to which the enviromental decree was manifested.

Get it, got it, good.

A regulated stay comes, if all the men good for having to use the red brown fox to jump in handles in the point, where the bags comes thus in a game as that use compenent and revolutionalartbewegung of manpower conceive, so that the communication was caused. The colors and the objections are not rédegré, the one that enviromental the payment was announced. it receives the maintenance - you, they.

Now when did they start making wax out of seals? Why are they called seals anyway? I imagine they are watertight. Is this where the word seal comes from?

We are so mysterious, it makes me want to pee on myself.

And you are all wrong. Sealing Wax is a wax used in a Canadian sport known as "Sealing", whereby you wax yourself up with a special wax, and then glide down a glacier on your belly, with a triumphant splash into the ocean at the end. I'm surprised you haven't heard of it.

peace,
sam

I have been participating in that sport on a daily basis for years.
We have lots of glaciers next to our igloos here.
I use previously chewed whale blubber as a lubricant.
It is cheap, recycling, and superior for everyday use to the porpoise made seal wax.

There is no mystery to the joys of peeing on yourself. It makes me giggle like a wee little girl. Who wants a spanking?

Cripes I need some sleep.

This is exactly the type of high-quality advice that I come to these forums for. You won't here that sort of no-nonsense advice at the local sealing wax shop, thats for sure.

And I'm glad so many people thought 'Hertzfeld' at the same time I did.

I would have liked to see zem all covered in sores. Now is the time on BikeForums where we daahnce!

peace,

It is a @#$@# strange world isn't it? I mean @#$# me to tears it is. I was on the cusp of giving up a lot of things and moving on to a different life and then I get hit by this train.

I love the responses. Now, who the @#$# killed Mayo?
