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)

Man, cloves taste and smell nice and make that fun popping noise, but I swear that stuff destroys your throat nearly as fast as unfiltered strikes. And I appreciate my throat, at least when I'm not smoking.

What are peoples' favourite papes for ciggies or spliffies? Rizla is a fixture here, but I've never been one to buy the specialty papers that abound since I have no clue what to go for.

Oh, and I named my kittens after the streets of the intersection I found them on, as they were strays. Do the same, or something.

While Rizlas are super easy to roll with (when drunk or otherwise intoxicated) I don't like the way they burn. I roll smoking deluxe; they're super-thin, they burn slow as hell and they come in a roll so I can just tear as much as I need--no more L's!



Who else here gets high and then rides their bike around? (disclaimer: if you've never tried drugs don't answer this question; you'll only look real ignorant!)

I'd love to be yellng "shut the F'ck up, Coltrane!" all morning instead of "...you stupid cat."

Thanks, oceanfx. You're spot on about Rizlas. I forgot how fast they burn since it's all I used, but it always sucks how unevenly they tend to burn. I'll look into Delue; the roll is key.

I get high daily like many people here, so it often overlaps with a bike ride. I loved the postman smoking a spliff at 5pm downtown today/

I have multiple pipes. A 1200+ humidor with a good portion of it full. Some Cubans and I smoke Parliaments.

Cuban cigarettes are freaking AWESOME if you have a chance to try.

Aren't we operating under the assumption that getting high makes everything better around here? I'd hardly think the question needs to be posed in this thread

Many many moons ago we used to get 50 packs of licorish Risla spliff papers at the store by my house for $2. Needless to say, thats all we smoked for a while. A whole lot cheaper then JOB and Swishers.

Only people with parents who didn't smoke start with menthols.

People with parents who did basically started smoking at age 0 and have to start with something real when the decision to do the smoking 1st hand is made.

(...as I cough up a lung because I'm smoking a j with tobacco while sick.)

Don't smoke outside when the brush is dry and the wind is howling.
