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)

Yo, I would buy that in a heartbeat.

Except for that second heartbeat - the one that pointed out that the MTA logo, no matter what you do to it, looks stupid.

HA! that's kinda expected.

Wonder if I still have the T-shirt from the last strike? lets see, IS131 was JHS65, the brooklyn bridge was almost unbikable, tribeca was a place to pick up prostitutes, the village actually had unique stuff, the Italians still owned Canal St and there was this killer bike store just east of the meat packing district. Guess there weren't as many T-shirt venders back then.

His avatar (I learned the day before yesterday) stands for "F*ck the MTA".

Also, Poopncow, you SO want to move back to new york. You should come back. You'll be happier.
