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 wonder...what rapper will follow Kanye's footsteps and get a track bike next....Pharrell Williams' probably kicking himself for not getting one first.

Actually, I knew Pharrell had a BMW for a rather embarrassing reason.

I was at my girlfriend's parent's house, and somebody was watching MTV. My Super Sweet 16 came on, and there was this girl that wanted a bike.

They went to BMW, and she REALLY wanted his bike. The guy told her no, and that the wait for a custom bike was about a year.

She cried and then her mom ordered her some lowrider bike from LA and paid and extra $1000 to have it shipped overnight to NY so it would be there for the party.

I then laughed at how stupid that girl, her friends, and her family were.

But yeah, I watched My Super Sweet 16. You wanna fight about it?

Although I don't think it was a Gangsta...

Does BMW do custom bikes? Maybe it wasn't BMW.

I'm so confused. I've worked too much this week. Polo time in t-minus, now.

Somebody please keep this thread alive.

They basically only do custom, from what I understand.

BMW makes custom cruisers. Thats what the girl wanted, and she got that ugly ass lowrider and a car.
