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)

NYC I was riding, you were looking for the Chinatown Bus

Who were you two?

I was on the black Soma Rush with Risers and Green Oury's you were Male and Female, and asked me directions to Chinatown when we were on Broadway and Houston.

First ever Menage~A~Trois personals ad on Bikeforums.

Not the first ever stalker ad though, sadly. Made me think of Woody Allen.

Just tryin to figure out who the fellow bikers were, I was more interested in sexually violating their bikes than any sort of skin to skin contact (gross).

You can't be ****ing serious. This is EXACTLY what Craigslist is for.

You know, that and buying bike racks to fit your 1996 Jetta in the same place you can find a dominant man to wear a gorilla suit and pee on you while singing a medley of famous Andrew Lloyd Webber tunes.

I took a bus from Chinatown to flushing, and the entire time the driver was on the radio with another driver, screaming at the top of his lungs at the guy back and forth, all while doing 10-15mph faster than the rest of the cars on the road... I was, um, uncomfortable, to say the least

It's okay, your bike on the front of the bus should pad any front in collisions.
