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)

Oh, ****, this is your bike! I took a picture of your rim at Monstertrack when I was, uh, not all there, and I was confused.

edit: new wheels?

165 - Me-di-um.

Leaving for Oz (home) next week so all snail mail correspondence goes to Ostraya.

Turd - Its STRICTLY BMX - but I can see how it may look like a maple leaf, eh?

The funniest thing was I was watching the news and saw the accident reported - the location was one block down so I was out the door - snap bloody snap...

Im rolling on the same wheels - built by Zach at trackstar. Just more stickers.

Vancouver, eh.

the italian cafe next to kitchen corner? or cafe calabria? or continental cafe... actually the more i thought about it you were pretty much in the heartland of good caffiene... or were you tempted by a cheesymite (vegemite+cheese) scroll from cobbs?

sorry i *suggested* that it was P/Shopped... it was just too funny/appropriate to be true!
