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)

Can I be banned please?

if only through the end of the year? I have got so much work to do and I just can't seem to get to it—everything gets pushed off, schedules reworked, late evenings/weekends are totally booked. I'm out of time and I need to stop coming, but just can't help myself—the kids at the fixed gear/singlespeed forum are just way too fun.

I thought this would be over as soon as we finished the bffg/mng weekend but it's only gotten worse now that I've met some of you.

help

well... it's a blood vessel I did for work, but the client thought it had too much cholesterol (said the person would be dead). but what does he know, he's only a pharmacist.

but if I said it's a flaccid penis, could I be banned?

If company IT blocked bikeforums on me, I think I would have to quit my job. Seriously.

There is a solution....but you won't like it.

Pick up a video game and start spending all of your time playing that. Oh, and start drinking a lot of scotch...and ******* type snack foods. After you gain 30 pounds you won't feel so bad about sitting on your ass visiting bike forums while you're not riding. Even if it does take up your free time.

Oh, start smoking too. And eat nothing but Hamburger Helper products (Tuna Helper is also acceptable).

c'mon taco. that's not very stylish of you. if you really wanted to get banned, you'd find a far more clever and creative way...
nude photos
obscenities
plots to take over developing nations
declarations of war against rival FG boards
intricate plans to turn crappy frames into pipe bombs
lewd comments toward msngr
revealing the secret ingredient
drunken posts with photos and suggestive dialogue not suitable for young audiences
homophobic comments

the possibilities are endless.
this thread is a disappointment.
