    Skid SKid Skid*

    just put on the cages and straps tonight, finally got to do the orgasmic skidding trick.. ahh..
    i know its NOTHING for you guys, but i have been waiting for this moment since i convereted my bike 2 months ago

    just wanted to share my noob's happiness.
    although my whole bb seems to be falling out and the cottered crank arm is breaking apart..... i just love to feel of skidding too much to give up

    Please. Everyone.

    "Toe clips".

    They're not cages. The pedal cages are what the toe clips attach to.

    Please do your part to keep me from twitching.

    "supprise"
    Ode to the after work nap ( ride your bike instead)

    Ode to the nap
    The evil, evil nap
    It lures
    you succumb
    But only with good intent
    Shortly I will rise
    But you do not.
    Do not succumb
    To the evil, evil nap

    yeah but still, i don't think you should ride without toe clips, i don't think anyone should enter the fixie world without haveing toe clip experience, haha. atleast use just one!

    get that BB tuned up quick like.

    a few days after i started skidding, my BB had some looseness... my LBS said if i had waited it could have potentially been bye bye for the threads..

    congrats on skidding. i was giddy after learning in the rain..
