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)

great track bike on bikesdirect!

i'm just kidding about the title, but i bet you were getting angry reading it

anyway, today goin up north broad there was a lamborgini (spelling?) riding next to me. between the traffic and the lights, we was probably going about 20-25ish. so now i had a challenge, and for about a mile it worked out that i was right next to him. i caught eyes with him twice and i could tell he was getting angry that a biker was keeping up with him / going ahead of him. so i just wanted to tell someone and i figured someone on here might listen. besides that, it was beautiful today and i hope everyone enjoyed it.

Just kidding.

The problem w/ Lamborghini's is they can only go as fast as the car in front of it. Always feels nice to pace a sportscar. The more expensive, the better.

he could just have been angry that you were riding dangerously close to his ride. And what jyossarian said also applies, that's why my dad still wins arguments that his honda accord is faster then the several porsche, vettes, and other racier vehicles, just because he happens to be in a faster moving lane.

I got pretty blatantly cut off today and found myself yelling MOTHER****** MOTHER****** JESUS CHRIST at a scared little old lady. But whatever-- learn how to drive, ya old bag. Not that the criminally old should be allowed to drive anyway.
