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)

Don't be too hasty with that. BFSSFG has a distinguished record of crappy threads. This doesn't even come close to the podium. Sorry, OP, it's a tough field.

I met Shants at the sinners & saints messenger race in Cleveland.
The evening started to get chilly so I was debating whether I should wear my hoodie.
I decided against it since we would all be riding as hard as we could, so I rode back to my car and threw it in the backseat.
When I got back everyone was teaming up and choosing who they would ride with.
The people from out of town were hooking up with locals because they weren't familiar with Cleveland streets.
Then the race started and, let me tell you, there was pandemonium on the streets of Cleveland that night.

Enjoy

i just drank a bunch of olive oil. i was originally planning on spiking it with garlic juice, but as the moment of consumption approached, apprehension got the better of me. i wanted my bowels to experience the sensations often afforded to bolivian drug-mules. there was pandemonium in my rectum this afternoon as i pondered why pirates are generally less saber than sash.
