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)

need some help with the "h" word

alright,
I have to create a powerpoint presentation for a college class. Any topic is open, I just have to keep it "G" rated.
I thought that hipsters on fixed gear bikes would be informative yet amusing.
please either post or pm me with information and pics or video about the "co-opting of fixed culture" or something like that

thanks

Isn't the point to do your own research and form your own opinion? And isn't there way more information available here already than you can use?

You sound like a lazy person.

ha
or maybe i'll just do something on how to build your own fixed gear
and i may be a little lazy, but it was more about conglomerating the wit and dry humor that abounds on this forum all into one convenient location from which I could sample until I was sick of it



maybe I am just lazy

at what point will the presentation devolve into random photoshoped images and long winded diatribes about brakes vs no brakes?

what about doing something that actually EDUCATES people about this aspect of cycling. You know - research "safety" bicycles, Marshall Taylor, the first velodromes, speculation on when/where/why track bikes emerged as a popular mode of transportation/working bike.

If you want to waste people's time - including your own - please, continue showing the stupidest possible angle of track bikes being ridden in the street.

don't fail before beginning your assignment.

Wrong. That would be so, so lame. It's barely even amusing to people who know what you're talking about, let alone a class full of people so dumb that their assignment is "make a powerpoint presentation on anything".

Sandwiches would be much more suitable.

I think you should just do a presentation about LOLCATZ. Everyone likes them. Most people hate bikes. If you want your classmates to like you, which you should, use LOLCATZ.
