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)

No worries bro. I already had dibs so he would not have sold it out from under me.
Picked it up at 7... made dinner after I got home and then put it together over a tall boi.
Nitto b123's and a drop stem. Suntour cranks. formula/velocity wheels.reload top tube pad.
If you come to the alley cat tomorrow you'll see it.

Can I suggest that you put a basket on the front and put an alien inside. Maybe grow a big ass white afro as well.

"1. mertonize
To preheat a cup or mug with hot water allowing the preferred beverage to remain hotter.
I mertonized the coffee cups before pouring the coffee so that the coffee will be hotter."

I honestly don't get what you're saying.

I could not possibly pull off daisy dukes.

When I am at work I bring my bike inside.
Usually otherwise I am just in the bar etc.... and nobody would ****s with it.. but I would not leave it on there for more than an hour or so unsupervised.

Hmm... My experience with Craigslist is a little different I guess. I sold some moustache bars on there a while back and had so many people flake on me that I finally had to explain to people that I couldn't hold them for anyone and that the first person to actually show up at my place with cash in hand would get them. It's probably a little easier getting ride of a $35 frame with horizontal drops in this town though.

I don't think I'm going to the alleycat tomorrow. If the GF was working I might, but I know she doesn't want to ride in this crap and to be honest I'm pretty sick of it myself. I will probably not be able to resist taking my bike for a lil' spin after my Craigslist King headset goes in tomorrow. It has been sitting here taunting me long enough.
