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're not exactly the critical mass sort. we're all for happy loving share-the-road attitudes, in theory, but in practice we would rather just **** **** up and do things pirate style. so critical mass does not fall high on our list of priorities when scheduling goofy fun ****. choose your path.

A few photos... other people took more: http://actionforce.net/gallery2/v/minibike_week0/

Video footage is being uploaded as I type...

EDIT! Video footage is up. Last five items in that above-linked gallery. My absolute favourite is the one in which knifefight falls. Classic!

I think it's physically impossible for anyone over 6feet to ride that thing, but I'll If I’m not busy I'll defiantly come out to watch people break their ASSets while trying to.

hahaha, yeah! i love those videos, they are incredible. i watch the one of dan over and over again and laugh my ass off every time. just hearing my own laughter on the audio makes me crack up. everyone be sure to turn up for the entire series as it is going to be more of the same, with even more creative shenaniganry, i'm sure...

thanks for the stars, val! can i give the brown one back?

I'm glad that my clumsiness can bring both of you as much pleasure as it does for me.

that and the overly determined look on your face at the start.

maybe if you too got a bihawk you would find success. and have bones of steel. there must be some correlation.

oh! I was determined! Look how I puff out my cheeks and F O C U S before I get into it. Well, before I try to get into it. The car didn't even phase me! Adam's best line is - I'm nobody's *****.
True.
