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)

Track/Fixed Bomb SF.......

Just a thought and wanna pass the word around that these couple of days I had heard from many fellows fixed gear junky in the City that there are lots of frames available at reasonable trade.

I think it's cool... that there are so many track rider f-u-k-i-n-g around riding fixed gear up and down big hill in San Fran....

SO... to all of you out there pleaseeezzzzzzz say Hi when you see fellow riders.. fixed, Track, Gear, tri, Ti, carbon, steel or whatever.....

(:

The saying hi thing is just weird to me. Why would I say hi to anyone just because s/he rides a fixed wheel? How elitist is that!? It's like assuming that everyone is cool that rides a fix which is far from true. I say hi to people I know, would like to know, or simply must aknowledge whether they are pedestrians, bus drivers, cyclist, bank clerks, police officers etc. doesn't really matter.

46x17 I say hi to anyone who rides a fixed cuz we can geek out, and geeking out is fun. I also say hi to roadies, and hi to mtn bikers because they're not cars. I said hi to a car the other week and he started honking at me trying to pass, but all he would do if he passed me is get stuck behind a truck and then at a red light. then he said "**** BIKES" and my friend scott rode infront of him, stuck his hands in his pocket and rode very... very... slowly. thats when the car let on his horn.

moral of the story: **** angry motorists.

That's exactly what I am trying to say.. but my ESL is c-r-a-p.....and I prefer number....

Everyday when I walk out my door, I said to myself .. today I might meet a new friend.. or smile and say hi to some one on the street....
It's just make me feel good....
just my 2 penny....
