    You guys are a bunch of try-hards. I know all of you came out of the womb on a placenta-smeared Nagasawa and all, but please cut the guy some slack. Kudos to Aeroplane for not being an ass.

    right now i'm emptying the delivery trucks in the morning with my roommate for puma. the 201 came in so we snagged it. it's sorta interesting, although i'll admit i didn't make it through the whole thing. i've got some scans and i'll send them to whoever wants them, as long as you promise not to pay money for it over ebay. but before warned, my scanner stinks.

    Thank you for having my back. yea what's the beef if im tryin to see if i can learn new tips from a book. im sure you guys weren't born experts. you learned yourself, saw other people ride, and read things in a book. remember how it was for you'all when you first learned how to ride, then use that to help other not make fun of them for not knowing. grow up people.

    100 times better than any marketing drivel puma is going to put out.

    And Gyeswho, none of us were born on a fixed gear, but none of us learned to ride because of puma. We practiced, rode, observed, learned from friends, sheldon, other web pages. I doubt any of us here learned (or have learned) much of anything from puma ads.

    People aren't making fun of you because you're new to fixed gear, its because you are claiming you want an advertising brochure and 'don't want to pay for it'

    Shiznaz,
    Thanks for posting that image.
    I checked out the MrBike site and found this to be somewhat amusing:

    Come on, man. Think about what you did. You got on the interweb to ask a message board how to find a guide to learn to ride your bike in the city.

    An ounce of common sense goes a long way when riding in the city.

    And learning from the experience of others can speed up the learning process. Kind of like finding out information on a bicycle message board.....

    I agree.

    But, you learn from the experience of others...by RIDING with others! I know it's a new paradigm, but I swear it works.

    i learn by experience, not by reading or listening. you can try to explain something to me for hours, but until i do it i'm like meatwad when they take out his brain to go swimming.

    I learned that I could sell their free swag on ebay for a nice profit with no overhead.

    Where is he? We don't know. Perhaps he is young and doesn't know any other riders. Perhaps there aren't any other riders in his city. I know that here in Riga, a city of almost a million people there are two of us that ride fixed. Yes, two.

    Don't harsh on somebody for asking for access to information. Good information is good information no matter the source.

    BTW, what kind of shoes do you wear?

    Why are you making excuses for this guy. Let him defend himself.

    What shoes? Depends on the day. I got over 60 pair...and that's just the Nikes.

    Because I beleive in access to information and I find the self-rightous attiude of the people against this book sickening.

    There seems to be the attitude that because Puma put out the book that the book is bad. We all wear corprate clothing, it's damn near impossible not to, but to benifit from something that a corpration put out, well, that's bad.....

    I don't think it's bad because it's corporate. I think it's bad because it's bad.
    Puma 201 is NOT good information.
    It's riddled with errors.
