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)

Well I guess I just lucked into this, then.

...jackasses like bassmoniker and blickblocks(though women like her seem to be fairly rare for some reason).
Don't worry Dutret, I'll send you mine once I get tired of it because it's just a fashion accessory bought so I can keep up with fad culture. Should still be in good condition because I never ride my bike, I just look at it. Be expecting a package any day now...

Nice grab, Bonechilling!

dutret, I haven't been on this site long, but in my short stay I've come across many posts by you that contain extensive amounts of knowledge that have helped me a great deal and I thank you for that! I just can't understand why you're so full of anger and hatred towards other members on this internet forum. No disrespect, but seriously, don't let stuff bother you so much. It's the internet for Christ's sake...

As I said usually I just ridicule morons for my own amusement. Last night I was in a foul mood since the price of aerowheels and my adversion to borrow something I can't afford to replace(among other things) cost me a race and of course a little drunk. That is directly a result of the type of ****ups who are so prevalent on this board. I despise people who spend money on stupid **** so they look cool be it jeans, sneakers or bikes and ridicule them at any chance because I find it fun. It is very rare that I actually get angry but just because I'm not angry anymore doesn't mean I don't think bossmoniker and every other hipster **** I see riding around on aerowheels isn't a piece of **** thats only use is to be an easy target for ridicule. A position that so far has been unanimously reinforced by those I have actually met.

no I'm saying I enjoy pointing out the folly of their conspicuous consumption. Harrassing is clearly against the guidelines.

No, it was obviously 130 when I got it, but I was able to respace with, of all things, my pipecutter. Pretty easy, took about fifteen minutes.

Dutret better be careful about letting pictures of himself leak out on the internet. People just might start biting his style.


Sweet hat, btw.

spacing != chainline. You can't redish a disk so my question is with the rim centered is the chainline correct.

because they amuse me most of the time and even when they don't at least there is someone specific to ***** to rather then an amorphous group to ***** about.
