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)

Whoa.

That is the jiz! Err. Biz.

At $30, that's really not much more than your usual blinky. I wonder how bright it actually is.

Mine will scroll, "Poop. Like from a butt." (Oh yeah, I bet I'm the only one who saw the Penny Arcade crew talk at MIT. I guess you had to be there.)

i actually thought about putting one of those on my bike like a bike plate, that said something along the lines of "f**k off cars" or "i'm carrying a gun" to ward off *******s in cars.

Man. Those damn things are all over Canal street. I got one like a year ago. It was a nice joke toy. Now it just sits in a box under the bed. It kinda kills the fun when you see some big 300lb. fat chick wearing one that says "Baby Girl" or "Sweet C*nt"

if i had one i'd put it on the back of my bike and it would say "hats off to val kilmer" because he is a talented actor, and it would increase visibility
