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 thought the thread was "Orang Anus..." and so just had to view it. As it were, there is no primate bum, just a request for pixxx. Pssh.

gregg, who pays for the bandwidth on your site?

I imagine all the pics, videos and remote linking could get expensive...

No.

I also think its wierd that when someone asks a question about a bike or a setup something, gregg's always like: "Here's x's bike/setup; check it out on velospace". Posting other people's bikes is a little wierd.

man, it sure is weird to have a picture to go with a hard-to-visualize description, especially when he credits the bike's owner...
edit: woops didnt mean to sound snide. i think it's nice that he will post a pic of someone's bike to illustrate a point. plus, if he says "it is so-and-so's bike" then he's crediting the owner... no harm done. obviously anyone that has posted their bike on velospace is okay with having it readily available to the viewing public. if he posted any of my bikes i wouldn't feel it weird.
sorry: end threadjack.

i don't want to ignore anyone. i mean, what if you said something really profound? i would miss it.

keep it in your signature. it would have been just as easy to inform us you're getting to 100 and there will be a prize for it in your signature. in my opinion, it would be much less intrusive there, and would show up on all your posts (a win - win the way i see it).

or you could start your own thread.

Wouldn't Tony @ IRO be the logical person to ask about this then?
