    God, why do people have to classify others like this? You don't even know his name, so you just call him the dude with the fixed gear shirt. Sheesh.

    sheesh yourself. rope it in a bit, willya? he is the only black actor on the show. anyway, getting back on topic, the shirt in question was discussed to death here about a year or so ago. can't remember the website it was sold on.

    edit: not quite a year ago, just last summer: We Can Shop At Macy's Now

    What's the problem? That's like saying "the blonde guy" or "the guy with a beard" or "the tall guy" or describing any other physical feature.

    What the **** are you talking about? The chinaman is not the issue here, dude. I'm talking about drawing a line in the sand, dude. Across this line, you DO NOT... Also, dude, chinaman is not the preferred nomenclature. Asian-American, please.

    wow, am i the only one who read thriftcore's post?

    anyway, on the topic of PC...i say **** PC, just be nice to people. i've known people who are PC as **** and not very nice, which sort of seems to defeat the purpose, and people who are as far from PC as it gets and perfectly good people.

    so to sum it up...**** PC, just be nice. but don't get a stick up your ass about it either.
    have:ea50 flats, black, light, stiff.
    144 bcd 3/32" 49t sugino track chainring, possibly 75.

    want: risers, light, stiff, 1", black if that can be
    144 bcd 46t or 47t chainring any kind or width

    To clear up some confusion:

    I "criticized" the original poster for classifying the character as a fixed gear fan.
    It was a joke.

    Yes! I can't believe nobody caught that brilliant line: you start reading the sentence *thinking* it's going to mention *race*, but then it does nothing of the sort and focuses on the *bike shirt* instead.

    People have got a sensitive PC Clitoris around here. If you rub around it just so slightly, they go all nuts and start having convulsions.
