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)

Abbreviations... decypher please!

not everyone knows what these things mean - include your smart-a$$ remarks because they are unavoidable anyway!

in case you don't know what I'm talking about: WTF! and such.

I can imagine what is being said but humor me.

one word : google.

any abbreviation or slang that you don't know, go to google, type it in, and usually the first page that pops up will tell you what it means.

that usually actually works for anything.
