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)

Dennis kicked his game up one notch

At FGG that is. We all know how he infallibly fails to cut out useless junk from the emails he posts... ads, personal comments like "I'm sending this for the second time cuz it got lost" or "please choose the pics you like" etc.

But #4475 takes the cake.
Enjoy.

Haha, think outside the box... or window. Or something. It's not the email text I'm talking about.

(I made it a bit cryptic on purpose. Clue: there's a reason why I didn't link the actual bike description&photo.)

The actual page title is correct, it's just the text of his link that's wrong.

I don't see why a mistake (OMGZZZZ OUT OF 5000 BIKES HE MADE A MISTAKE) like that is worth making a post about.

I can see it as funny if only because Cogniscenti sounds like an obscure Italian bike-maker.

Dennis took the donation money and ran to Tahiti. The site is actually run by trackstanding monkeys working for barely a subsistence wage.
