    More importantly, where can I get a stret cred report, to check how high my street credit is?

    There was that one time when I wore unfashionable pants. I wonder if that goes against my rating?

    freestreetcredreport.com, 900 pts being the highest. as for the pants it shouldnt matter unless they were acid wash with pleats.

    I haven't ridden one, but I do know that the fork brake hole has a weird tube that goes all the way to the back hole. So if you knock the star nut in too far, you can't knock it all the way down the steer tube and back out. ****ty design, IMHO. Whats more, its got an integrated headset. Integrated headsets are ****ing stupid.

    Otherwise, it seems fine for a budget fixie. I love the name, too.

    Thanks ryand. I had no freaking idea what kerning was, and that's the last sort of thing I'm going to google at work.

    Just stick another star nut in on top of the old one. $1.50, 2-3g and you'll be the only one to know.

    well it's designed for dtp, ie print, so yeah if that's not what you're using it for there are probably better solutions. i like it very well, for magazines. have used it for 12 years - it's like second nature to me. i prefer it to indesign, but i'm a bit of a stick-in-the-mud
