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)

9, 9, DQ San rensho parody photo?

where is the photo of the parody of the 3rensho sticker that says 9,9, DQ? I've been looking and looking, but someone's BF-fu must be greater than mine.

What does the 9, 9, DQ mean? Does Dairy Queen have a 99-cent menu?

3rensho means 3 consecutive wins, the best a racer can do in a keirin race, and has the highest pay out. the 3 1's in circles represent 3 first place finishes. 9, 9 dq, means last place, last place, disqualify, or about as bad as anyone can do....

yea im a nerd.

That's very interesting, thanks for answering my smart-arse question with a serious answer. So how would one say 9, 9, DQ in Japanese?

It's actually called "shikaku" in Keirin.

It's a parody, not to be taken seriously ;-)

Its not really an in-joke for any riders in Japan. Anyone who cycles (fixed or not) knows 3rensho in Japan.
Also, they made road bikes too. With gears and brakes and all those road bike things on it.
