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)

"Worst of 2005"

Taken from Issue #93, December 2005 - XLR8R Magazine

"10. Track Bikes : Track bike riders are the new vegans. They get all sanctimonious if you have brakes and they go to brunch with their pant legs rolled up and their chains around their waists so that even when they're not on their precious baby bikes people will know they're elite. And don't invite them to a party at your house or they will drop their noisy chains on the floor 400 times, drink all your beer and piss in their pants."

**** yes. i just wonder what they are locking their bike with if they still have their chain around their waist.

that said, i will definitely drink all of your beer, and, if the situation is right, i will piss my pants, get up, and then snort your cocaine. that's how we roll.

"10. Road Bikes : Road bike riders are the new non-transportational cyclists. They get all sanctimonious if you don't show up with a BMW with carbon strapped to the trunk and they go to brunch with their diaper pants and their gu stained bib-shorts, their waists are generally large so it begs the question, "Why carbon?" Their precious baby bikes aren't designed to bear that weight even at the low speed, low stress MUP on the way to the donut shop. And don't invite them to a party at your house or they will drop their noisy comments about grams and carbon on the poor tired ears of people who actually use their bikes functionally instead of recreationally, they will drink all your wine and generally act "Holier than thou" and leave the rest of the revelers thinking, "What a pompous ass"

*Just for fun.

Woah.. XLR8R survived the great rave-dieback of the 1990's? I had no idea they were still around. Regardless, I find this funny.

Brunch? I spend my nights snorting too much coke, drinking too much beer, and having too much sex to wake up before 3pm. VIVA LA POSENGERS

brunch is where it's at! the only thing that tops it is the indian buffet "meal of the day". wake up at 1, out to the spot by 3, eat yourself sick, home by 4, get indian food coma, sleep 'til 7, wake up still full... begin parting the night away!

on topic: if you get paid to write anything, who gives a sht what you say! boo-yah!

Personally, I like to anonymously bow out of brunch plans with Steaktaco that he knows nothing about.

One time, at brunch, 3 of 8 found hair in our food. Nobody spewed, but I gagged at the sight of poor Marnie extracting a foot-long hair from her mouth. Banff Springs Hotel - FYI.

brunch is how us poor folk get to have two meals for the price of one plus unlimited bloody mary's and feel really bourgie about it, all before 2pm.

Marge: What's brunch?

Jacques: You'll love it. It's not quite breakfast, it's not quite lunch, but it comes with a slice of cantaloupe at the end. You don't get completely what you would get at breakfast, but you get a good meal.
