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)

Un/popular opinion

Why are there sooo many threads that begin with Unpopular or popular opinion...can we not think of anything more creative....a narative hook, or a catchy title (similar to that of feature writing in journalism) that will create interest in the subject matter?

sorry repetitiveness gets to me...

Once I thought I had deja vu but I was mistaken.


Or was I?

I got pedal strike yesterday going up the slight incline from street to grocery store parking lot. I fell on my face. It was suprising.

I almost started a thread "Unpopular Opinion: I hate bicycles" to mock all the unpopular opinion threads.
