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)

First Deck/Favorite Deck

Okay, kinda off topic... But after the way the Jason Lee thread ended up, thought this one would be cool.

What was your first deck? AND what was your favorite deck?

Mine-

1st: Powell Lance Mountain XT in pink



Fav: Toss up between Blender Coffee Break and Faces





your turn

When you become and old man, you'll have a favorite. Be patient, young one.

I was also a huge fan of the Schmidt Stix Lopes. Never bought the board, but i had the t-shirt, does that count?

Ha, remember when doing crazy crap with you grip tape was the rage. I spent something like two days cutting out a Dead Milkmen logo out of grip for a deck.

Then there was that clear crap you could put stickers under. I was akin to 25 grit sandpaper.

I can't find a picture of it, but it was a really cheap Nash board. Blue and green, and a shark on it.

Favorite deck is a Phaze One local deck to Tallahassee, Florida. Seriously. Partly because I love Orly and his shop ethics, and they are just quality. I've had all different sorts of major decks, but Tally local is still my favorite.

That is until Ryan sends me his .

My first deck was a Tony Hawk, it was the ugly one with the circle lookin things on the bottom. My favourite would be a toss up. I had an awesome Santa Cruz Tim Brauch and I had an SMA Natas, both boards were awesome and I can't choose between the two.

I don't have a photo of the exact deck (my dad bought it for me in 1995), but this is the graphic that was on it:
