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)

i think she speaks unicornese, only she probably lives in the enchanted forest, which is a bit of a ***** to get to, oh and if you use testers glue, she'll totally huff it with you

Besides unicorns and maiden princesses...you need to attach the pedals, handlebars, front wheel, and seatpost if I can remember correctly.

comes with the rear end all together and the fork in. all you have to do is assemble the stem, handlebars, saddle, seatpost, and the front tire. theres a unicorn to watch you put it together. and when its all assembled, you ride the unicorn.
