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 dont know about carters, i havent seen any others, but persuit frames arent that rare (tho rarer than regular track frames). search for a thread called "funny bikes" for a bunch of them.

this one was found embedded in the side of a humpback whale.

In Oz, they just toss awesome frames into the sea. Such is the life of a relocated criminal...

That's if we live anywhere near the sea. Usually we cut them up and use the tubing to fashion drop-bear hunting spears.

You've clearly never bred with an Australian. I assure you, sir, it's anything but fun. Especially when, after mating, the female Australian uses her powerful front forelimbs to decapitate you and eat your head.

I'm trying to imagine what the spawn of that would look like. It'd be all, like, invading countries in hats with corks on. Or something. Or wearing huge shoulderpads for cricket.

I can't understand why you wouldn't want to be truly, truly outrageous.

And trying to run around the boundry when they hit the ball. In fact, I think the ICC should make the Aussies play like this just to give the rest of the world a chance. It wouldn't be the stupidest rule they've come up with.

The crossbreeding would probably do them some good. I have a roommate with "Cat Eyes" (her irises are deformed and elongated). I asked her if she was wearing contacts in an attempt to be gothy and she replied "no, it's a genetic defect from inbreeding. There weren't always a lot of reproductive choices in Adelaide."

I kid you not.

In England, it's only Londoners and Cricket/Rugby fans that hate you. In London, it's because every single bartender is Aussie. For some reason that bothers people. As far as the cricket and rugby - meh. As long as we're still a million times better at footie, I won't care. You're fine with me.
