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)

since I only say nice things about tattoos people have already gotten I will just say this. This one may have the beneficial effect of keeping you into cycling long after all the other scaddy hipsters have moved onto the next fad. Also it will be easy to conceal unlike most things that large and maybe it might look better when its done.

So that would be a blood smear there, under the nip? au jus?

I might be alone here on this, but I envision it much, much, larger. I see a journey. An entire triptych on torso and arms with cars, trucks, joggers, city workers, squirrels, tree limbs, broken glass, a single sneaker, shopping cart, night into day into night, that sort of thing.

No brake cable yet, so functionally it's still brakeless.

but seriously

but seriously, why did you get the brakes? why not a hot fixie? or what about, "share the road" with moses riding a track bike whilst parting a sea of cars? did u simply give him the idea, then lay back as he began. it just looks very amateur, maybe it will look 10x better when it is finished.

That's pretty funny. Yeah, the tattoo just doesn't look very well thought out, but maybe the brake cable and 2nd session will make it look better.
