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)

No wonder I'm not getting any. The chicks can smell a $10 Miche bottom bracket a mile away.

also they removed the pictures of the BB and kate winslet, that's what tied it all together.

seriously though, somebody buy these so i can move on and get some new ones.

i think it was more along the lines of accident victims being offended at my descriptions of what might happen to you if you don't purchase my brakes.

i also tried posting one completely in l33t speak, but they didn't like that one either.

Interesting. I've always assumed that the poster of that ad was on this forum... wnatw are you the same person who had the porch cleaning sale a while back? Wrong? Right? Delusional? Perhaps.

Wrong. I've never had a porch cleaning sale.

Another ad will be appearing soon for an entire bike... I'm thinking of typing up something connecting it to the fall of Rome, with pic goodness.

would that my job be as chill... unfortunately i think the ITs here suspect something and i'm constantly clearing my history before logging off at night.

all of this CL crap was borne of one horribly miscalculated parts order from Nashbar, now over two months ago. I sold the BB to ryand who then apparently passed it onto Spud, I NEED TO SELL THESE CALIPERS SOMEONE BUY THEM, and finally my roomate is trying to sell a bike that he built up over the winter. after that, i've got nothing more to offer except a smile.
