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)

KEIRIN Video Game??

Okay. I vaguely remember someone mentioning stumbling across a Keirin racing video game. Who was it? Where was it? How can I play it? What's it called?

I need to know.

Yeah. There's no doubt that there must be at least one or two Keirin games floating around out there, especially if it's really as popular in Japan as I'm made to believe. I mean, remember that nintendo game "Othello" (with the black and white pieces... not Shakespeare style). Yeah, exactly.

The Keirin games sound fun, but I'm holding out for THQ's "Kevin Bacon-Pro Alley Cat"

the keirin game that i have seen for super nintendo (i've also seen a couple of others) was a betting game -- there was no actual control of the bicycles. since keirin is largely just considered to be a betting sport for most of the people in japan (kind of like horse racing in the states, or so i gather), that's where the focus is.

I'd get this on the back of my calf if it wasn't all bulgy and weird.



At least that's what I'm telling myself at night.

The only things keeping you from playing the import Japanese games on the US console are two plastic tabs inside the SNES. You can take needle nose pliers and just snap them off. PM me if you can't figure it out.

that game, as i said above, is a keirin betting game. you do not actually control the racing of any bicycles.
