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)

we can't talk about that for several reasons, kyle:
1- several of us are just getting up, are freaking hung over, and can't think.
2- some of us have important things to do like getting drunk.
3- you're a freaking loser for not coming to vegas this weekend, and two days of 18 hour benders say you missed some good times.

now go ride your pista
