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)

Poll: How do you like this bag design?

I came up with this design for a bag I may get. I like it but I think it might be too cheesy. It's Richmond's flag(except black and white instead of red, white and blue) and richmond's motto translated into english(from latin). What do you guys think?

I dunno, but I bet he'd have enough money saved to get a new bag.


Go for it. It's cheesy, but what the heck.

Dang, I didn't even know we had a motto. I say if you like it your own self, get it, don't look for validation here. Of course, you will need a classic RVA bike liscence plate to really make it rock.

better without the motto or "RVA"...if I was 100% sure then I would go for it...I just have the feeling it may be too cheesy...but then again maybe thats a good thing. Hmmm....what do you guys think of it without any of the words?

maybe it can say "richmond is full of jerk ass people who smell like farts, except for my friend donna, cause she's pretty cool." and maybe an "EWWW!"

I think it'd look really good without the white parts.
