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)

Leave me a message

There's a dry-erase board on my bike. If you know where that is, leave me a message.

someone just ran off with the marker, huffing wildly. Next time, consider chalk. It is less addictive...

ps - cool idea!

two messages so far. One from someone I know who was making a delivery, one anonymous one from someone who has "admired my bike for a while".

I painted the top tube of my work ride with chalkboard paint and have some chalk in a cork bar plug. Great for taking notes on the road and scheduling routes.

the board & marker are attached with string & packing tape. String is wrapped around the top tube and taped to the back of the board. "Securely" wouldn't quite describe it, unless my only fear is that it might blow off my bike in a strong gust of wind...

My niece is also very excited whenever I visit, because she gets to draw all over my bike without me getting upset.

ok, that was hilarious. Leaving work today, I find many more messages on my bike. They were touching, threatening, and insulting:

"CONJO I KILL YOU"
"1 Fried rice, 2 Veggie Roll, 1 noodles"
"You = Jerkass"

I love you guys. But not just for that. Also for the seat + toptube wrapped in toilet paper, several cheap & ****ty CDs ziptied to my handlebars and seatstays, softcore porn and phone sex ads in my spokes, and the stuffed tiger ziptied to my stem. Here's a picture of the little guy:


Whoever did this (and I feel that I have a pretty good idea who did).....that was awesome.

I would just get profanity, or a note like "move your bike, it's blocking the sidewalk".
