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)

aaaand we're back!

full njs, (minus the rims, spokes and tires).

i'm not going to rhapsodize about the ride; suffice it to say it was very very good (and a friend saw me on the street and made me go drink wine with him. it was rough).

Put some orange grips on your Silk monkey...and stop wine-in'. NJS hot to death. Now you gotta chase the derny for maximum hotness.

Very nice, G. And the dark woods background is making my imagination run wild .

Maybe we can deconstruct that photo with some of those books on the book list thread. Wasn't one "Man and His Symbols".

1) Full NJS bike (this can be broken down into its constituent components as well, esp. those DA 7600)

2) A fence.

3) A bottle of wine.

4) The dark woods.

Discuss.

My NJS shiz beat all your friends' taiwanese junk on Saturday. Don't even give me that crap about bonus points, I came, I saw, I arrived to the finish first. BAM!

Thanks for setting up the race though man, it was good times.


All crap-talking aside, I'm glad the peloton is back Galen. That thing is so nice. Congrats, again...

I'll call you next time, sorry dude.

We're going to ride on Friday, you should come along.

I still need to give you your crank-puller back, thanks for letting me borrow it.

Aside from Asthetic/Fetish purposes: what makes NJS more desirable for street use? I notice that Campy doesn't "do" NJS at all, and have read they have no desire to.
