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)

Try posting on a japanese bike picture site and see how much sense you make. I'm pretty sure that bike is 'for real' though. Not for realzies though...

Drilled for a rear brake, as well. Presumably to take full advantage of the flip-flop hub.

lol

If you only speak english, an engrish speaker has you at an advantage. Not only are they bright enough to learn 2 way different languages, but the womens will find their talk sweet & endearing where does that leave you?


I suk at the language whichever the one
