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)

Oh yeah! That's it baby, feeels so good!!!

That sweet spot! Cleaned my drive chain last night and this gave me the chance fiddle with my chain tension. Puuuuuuurfect!! My track stands sat down are soo much smoother with either foot forward rather than the jerkyness I had gotten acustomed to where the chain shiffed slightly. I had better enjoy it while it lasts!

'Drive chain'... Do you mean 'drive train'? Is this all just a euphemism for ************? I can tell you all about the wank I had this morning if you really want (just j/k, brick;-).

Oh yeah duh!

I like that though, I may start refering to ************ as "cleaning my drive chain" from now on though.
