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 just dumped my account. Got pretty tired of it. I was Tim of All Trades. For what it's worth.

theres a bunch of other fixed gear groups- fixedgeararmy, fixed gear and bicycle enthusiasts, etc.

i bet having the BF group will bring a BUNCH of people over here, like it or hate it. but i'll join!

that being said, http://www.myspace.com/k3nho

the fg forums on myspace are boring and pretty annoying compared to BF, IMO. imagine BF without the search function, or worse, without people to remind others to use the search function for newbie questions. what are you left with? lots of newb questions and everyone thinking they are the expert about everything.
