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)

Faux Pol: Aren't you glad Chicago took their threads elsewhere?

Once we get rid of the Iro vs. Surly vs. Bianchi vs. KHS vs. Phil. vs. Don Walker threads this place will be my-t-fine.

But I'll settle for those Chicago nutters taking their banter elsewhere. Ole!

A resounding yes.

Don't piss in a public pool, and then complain about how lame it is to swim at the YMCA. Plus they liked to hog the deep end. Good kids, though. Just a little diva-ish.


Is that a brown M&M? I said no ****ing brown M&M's!
