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)

Is pointing to make a steal wrong?

The other day I was dorking around at an LBS and happened to notice a pair of Titec H Bars hanging like 10' up on the wall. Just out of curiosity, I asked the owner how much he would want for them. He's like, "Oh hell, just give me $10 and we'll call it good". Unfortunately, I didn't have any cash on me at the time. Flash forward, I've got like $15 in my wallet right now and I'm gonna go get me some H-bar goodness. The question is, should I just point at the bars and say "I want those," or grab the ladder and get them myself?

Pointing to make a steal in any situation is just plain wrong!

You should ride into the store on your fix, and while doing a skid-salute, point at the bars.

Then steal them.

So the other day at work my boss comes up and says "You can't wear those band shirts to the office" and I'm all "**** you dad Slayer rules and I didn't want to work at your ****ty insurance company anyways" and he gets all mad and takes my housekeys and says "your mom is going to be so disappointed" and I'm all "I don't care Mom sucks she won't let me eat Milky Ways for dinner even though I'm 25 and can make my own decisions" and then dad's all "When are you moving out anyways" and I'm all "I don't want to live in your ****ty suburbs anyways" and that really showed him who's boss.

So what kind of bullhorns should I put on my Pista?
