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)

this is a HIGHLY prized and very rare njs "poople skirt". keirin racers use this more as a cape, when flying over america and shooting lasers out of their eyes at american njs fanboys that don't even race track, let alone need a njs aproved bike. check it out! it'll hopefully match that njs purse and lipstick you love.

OMG, Please do tell where I can get a njs purse and lipstick. I absolutely must have them. Though it's critical that the purse match the Sidi Bullets I wear when I ride my Anchor.

njs fanboi threads-- especially stupid ones like this-- make me want to put razor blades in things.

if you're not riding in a keirin league overseen by njs, why do y our TOOLS have to be njs? Assuming there's even such a THING as njs tools! I wonder, in decibels, how loud a japanese keirin rider would laugh at such a ******** notion.

Yeah, it's quite reasonable to assume that Hozan would produce only lockring tools.

They wouldnt laugh cause most japanese people arent total ******bags...unlike many Americans, who just love to give people **** for no reason whatsoever.
