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)

this acts like a "spokecard of the month club" with your shop being the central hub of operations & distribution.. cuts down on individual shipping costs, too. i'm in

Sorry to rain on your parade, but are spoke cards just decorations now? What was once a souvenir for an alleycat, is now a form of advertising. When are autographed team Puma cards coming out? I thought the Xmas exchange was a clever idea, but this just seems like an ad ploy for your shop.

I really dont care if it comes through the shop or not.. I just figured it would seem a bit safer through the shop then through myself.

Sorry if it seems like a ploy but it's not
