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)

in fact, I just removed "that place" from my bookmarks. Over-priced hipster opportunists suck.

I deleted my post cuz I felt I was being a ****** too, but now I regret it.

Why must everyone take things so seriously. I like trackstar, I'm friends with those guys and yes, somethings are more expensive, but thats not because they are trying to rip people off, its because of other factors, and if you knew these guys at all you wouldn't be saying anything bad about them. Anyways, this argument's been beaten to death already so I'll stop.

i told michele about this sticker the other day and she thought it was silly and non-offensive. she has a vagina.

also: maybe if trackstar quit sponsoring alleycats they could charge less! what a buncha vaginas!

note, that was sarcastic

the shop is in the east village in manhattan. space here is expensive homies!

Originally, if you read my post, I said the sticker is stupid and that they are WAY overpriced. If you pay their asking price then I can't knock the hustle. . . . .BUT they are overpriced and a sucker is born everyday.

Speaking of overpriced, wangster.
Any idea how much those wool jerseys are going for?

this seems to be the running gag with "us"... whoever the **** "we" are... stuff that we think should clearly be offensive is laughed at and shrugged off, and then something cheeky like this is thoroughly shat upon by the masses of taste police?! how do we keep missing the mark when we try, but hitting bullseye with our eyes closed?

christ. don't be a vagina, okay?

For the record, I don't think it's lame because it's "offensive."
I just don't think it's funny.

The sticker is by no means offensive. . .it looks as though yoyu would read it on the wall of a junior high bathroom.

I don't get it.

Don't be a vagina? Is this a play on how the anatomical male counterpart, dick, is used as slang?
Not funny.

maybe so, but this is the kind of **** that makes us giggle... and what reason do we have not to? we're all twentysomething, healthy, living in NYC, acting like juvenile two-wheeled terrorists every single day, hanging out, ripping **** up, and having the most fun ever...

and then there are people who feel the need to start threads calling cheeky **** like this "dumb"... well, yeah... maybe it is. so ****ing what? leave the grown-up bit to someone else. we won't be this pretty forever.

If that kinda behavior doesn't get you ridiculed I don't know what will...

p.s. I'd rather be a pussie than an ass.
