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)

Hey dude who asked me about my bike in the alley beside my apartment.

The thread we were posting on was deleted.
Do you live in the building?
What do you ride?

Dude, you should know better by now - don't even talk about threads being deleted around here. This thread is so doomed now!

Shh...you hear that???

It's the mods coming.

Man I hope he doesn't live in the building. I guess my dog barks incessantly when I'm not here and a couple of people complained. Now I get to spend a few weeks trying to relieve him of his separation anxiety.

Oh..yeah, uh...bike rule and stuff and I hope I can ride with the dude I met in the alley..

No, the red shirted ensigns are usually the first.

Haha I almost didn't see this -- it was me you spoke to. I am a leasing agent and I've been showing a vacant place in the building which is why I was there. I just got rid of my track bike and have a bit of a Frankensteinish MTB-based townbike now. You should just throw your dog in your bag and bring it with you if it is sad at home.

Oh man. Don't tell whoever rents the space that there is a barking dog! I am working with a couple of animal behaviorists and am on a program to get him to stop. Slowly but surely. I am housebound until he is "cured" though. Thankfully I work from home.

Why'd ya get rid of your track bike??
