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)

cheap, insane, gender exploration - you name it, this guy was doing it!

One day he was "Neal," the next day he was "Terrie"...but yeah, track parts for dirt cheap. EAI was not happy with him

oh neal... i remember how people were always complaining about
him being scatterbrained and problems with orders ...yet, he managed
to ship the soma frame i purchased for $300 to me in switzerland
for $40 and that within two weeks. never heard from him again.

funny thing- i was just thinking about him the other day.

he shipped part of my order, gave me the runaround for about a month for the rest, then shipped part of the rest of my order with a free patch kit, ugly bar tape, and a cog to compensate. . . .along with a partial refund in CASH. who the hell ships CASH through the MAIL??!

lessons learned:
1. check bikeforums before ordering through the interwebs.
2. don't do meth.
