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)

A tip of the hat, and a wag of the finger

Tip of the hat: RELoad. My top tube pad just got here. 19 inches of custom goodness. Only took a few days to get here, too. So, thank you Mr. Burns. It's eeeexcellent.

Wag of the finger: Trackstar. We had a little screenprinting deal going on for a t-shirt I designed. I appreciate their doing it, but I haven't had an update in months. So Brad, what's going on?

Just some praise to RELoad. And trying to get Trackstar to respond to me (which they did). And then it turned into a Stephen Colbert fan club.

"wag of the finger"? that's gay. don't ever say that again. and while we're on the subject i saw someone write "hammies" for hamstrings. this is also highly gay. avoid these locutions.

thanks!

"wag of the finger"? "hammies"? definitely gay. use your ears, man!

thanks!

i'm just tellin' ya like it is! there're enough gay words in bikin'--"blinkies", "hammies" (though i ran across that on a running website and promptly shut that ***** down and was thanked for it), etc. we shouldn't let this "wag of the finger" thing get away from us is all i'm sayin'! we got us an image to project and protect. dude, if you're gonna swill cheap beer and have tats and wear chains and *****, ya gotta stay away from gay locutions. it waters down the brand!

thanks!
