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)

the fact that he's still living with his ex (or spending a lot of time around her) is probably the first thing that he needs to remedy.

what shants said, and also, as soon as he starts sleeping with someone else he'll get over it.

in the meantime, start small, sausage or pepperoni on his pizza, some bacon crumbled into the scrambled eggs, just like training for a race.

(and i'm vegan if it makes aany difference).

It took me so many re-reads to figure out what the **** you are trying to ask that I don't think I have enough energy to ride my bike now.

If this is really a problem for him, which could be serious, perhaps he should entrust it to a more creditable body than an online fixed gear forum.

heh. this is one thing my dad created (he's always experimenting in the kitchen. it rubbed off on me, totally): red cabbage, red onions, cinnamon, apples, and raisins, all stewed together. most disgusting slop i've ever tasted. now THAT'S nasty.

to me, organs are just a dead animal i'm eating, the same as a thigh or wing or steak.

anyway, this dude in the letter should eat what he wants and stop worrying about his ex. obviously he still gives a **** about her for whatever reason, so that needs to be remedied before he can stop worrying. so i second dolface, he should sleep with someone else, or at least start talking to other girls and getting numbers and ****. find a new pretty, fixie riding gal to fall head over heels for, you know?

And organ meat is delicious. Chicken liver omelettes are just one prime example.

don't answer calls from her, create a filter that sends her email to the trash, and tell her he's gonna get a restraining order if she doesn't stop stalking her.

and then send her a pound of raw bacon in the mail.

ok, hows this?

get an asbo on her

turn up at her house at 3am next tuesday morning, high on rock, naked and smothered in beef dripping, with back bacon rashers stapled to his feet (pumas) and an aviator helmet made out of steak. and then ask to get reaquainted with her. in the biblical sense.

tell her that she never really had a trust fund (she gotta pay everything back) and that 8her 0's chromed carlton track bike is really a pista with the decals ripped off...

you people think that might just put her off?
