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)

I may have inadvertently purchased a stolen track bike. Send me your serial number. If I have a match I will return it.

How does one know if they bought a stolen bike? I mean, obviously if a crackhead sells you a shiny Cinelli track for $100, then it's probably stolen, but still..

A friend of a friend can get me pretty much anything I want:

new, slightly used laptops for $100

new, slightly used hi-end cellphones for $30

new, slighty used power tools, dewalt, makita, bosch

leather jackets, jeans, etc. etc.

NYC is full of black market hustlers...with hot property to unload.
