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)

Trying to remember when I used to smoke... I think your problem may lie with skidding, and not skipping. I never really smash my pockets on my bars. Could be your setup maybe?

Yup, there are many benefits to quitting and in your case there would be an extra one.

get a cigarette case.

makes you look especially suave and sophisticated, and if you keep it in your breast-pocket, it might save your life one day a la so many war films.
