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)

bike forums spoke card

so you know how everyone is afraid to ask about the forums in person? well someone should make a spoke card with the BF logo on it that way when we see someone with it, it wont be so akward!

this is either the best idea ever or the worst ever, i am not sure yet.

at first I thought you said it should have BF on one side, and their SSN on the other... THAT, would be a bad idea.

I think it's also an even specialer bond between two other people.

It could be that yellow question-mark/circle in the upper right corner. I like the distant shadow-thing, like it's the Bat Signal.


Or a red star? Comrades?

I'd also like to fore-acknowledge the pretty spectacular lameness involved in laminating cards in celebration of... sitting down a lot. And I mean a LOT, here.

Why don't we just put merit badges on our mess straps and be done with it.


edit: Merit badges could be pretty awesome, actually. In that shameless way. I know we got some crafty *****es up in this, too.
