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)

I would guess that your bike's mores dictate that it behave in a very bikey fashion. This being its custom. What are you talking about?

If a custom you find, one that fits your group mind,
... that's a more.

If s/he does 'round the world, without mussing a curl,
... that's some *****, eh?

When you're making goat cheese, what you get when you squeeze,
... that's some more whey.

If you add all the worst, then divide by the first,
... that's sum o'er A

When an eel bites your hand
And that's not what you planned
That's a moray.

When our habits are strange
And our customs deranged
That's our mores.

When Othello's poor wife
She gets stabbed with a knife
That's a Moor, eh?

When your house is a mess
And it's time to have guests
That's a chore eh?

When he talks on and on
And all you do is yawn,
That's a bore, eh?

and of course;

When "The Fonz" gives a shout
'Cause he likes whats turned out,
That's some more "Aaaayyyy"s

thank you, i'm here all week...

Dolface - you are a poet!

When it rains in you face
And you can't keep the pace,
.... that's a more

When you want to catch salmon
But can only catch trout,
... that's a more

etc. etc. etc.
