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)

I am also grateful for twice baked potatoes, and moms that make vegetarian dinners for their wierdo sons. I am grateful for people all over the world riding bikes as much as possible and anything that brings people together for something awesome. I am happy.

My frame is sitting at the distribution center 5 miles away.. and UPS isn't shipping regular ground tomorrow so I called them up wednesday and am going in to pick mine up so I have something to do over the weekend.

Check to see if your kilo is at a distribution center with a customer service desk close by that way you don't have to wait so long

I'm grateful for Jurassic Park and Domino's Pizza. I'm also grateful for stalking marqueemoon and stealing the **** out of those nuts.

Edit! I'm also thankful for all white tires, chrome vs. timbuk2, should I buy a Pista, hipster jackass of the day, where online can I get tarck bike, and who is Pistaboy?

So my Japanese ex-girlfriend emailed from Texas to say happy thanksgiving....without going to the effort of searching wikipedia 'what is thanksgiving?' ....do you just thank for anything...or is the crops produce or freedom(generica us related guess) or something? anyway I thank myself for buying a 1996 3Rensho with Sherrif star hubs, and a 2000 Nagasawa with disc rear and corima 4 spoke front!
I also thank all Americans for being involved in a ridiculously long weekend involving eating what looks like Pecan Slice!
(ps I am a humble small town australian...sorry for ignorance etc...)(****ing aussies)

i'm thankful for horror movies that are thinly-disguised softcore, mango white tea, nike glides, and hed3 wheels of questionable integrity.
