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)

I remember when I grew out of my Rocky Mountain Hammer that I used to race when I was pistaboy's age. To this day I still rubber-neck those bikes whenever I see an old one on the street. Nothing fancy, but a ****load of great memories.

I had the good fortune of having my bike stolen at that age, which I replaced with a something a lil' bit bigger.

And apparently free, too!

Rumors of your grounding (and nonexistence) seem to have been greatly exaggerated. Your recent posts made me drop the "Free Pistaboy!" signature . . . it's been kinda dull around here ever since.
