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)

This sub forum...

So out of boredom, i spent ten minutes or so at the tandem forum, then came back here.
Comparitively, it feels like a warm, peaceful, happy library in there.

This is all.

They ride tandems, sp00ki. They're stuck with each other. They have to get along.

I went to the road forum once.

I have never dared go back... what a bunch of hateful, ignorant yuppies. Their attitudes towards women and the general feeling of insatiable materialism appalled me.

I jump around from the Road forum to MTB to SSFG. They all have their own personalities and cliches. I think it'd be horrible to classify any one riding style/terrain as being the best. That would make this sport boring. Actually, for SSFG, is it a sport or a hobby for some?

Hobbie for most. But then also most road ad mtb riders do it as a hobby, not a sport.

I consider bike riding a sport. There is no win or lose, but it is still a sport. If I practice hockey by myself in my backyard, is that sport or is it hobby? I say the former.

The B9board of bikeforums?

MOAR LYKE /B/ikeforums




This place has gotten seriously stupid. And I love stupidity. But the ol' time people who could provide a wealth of interesting and useful knowledge and have been replaced by idiot teenagers accusing me of being a hipster.

The clyde/athena sub is both inspiring and depressing. Discuss.

Shut up, you stupid hipster. Your bike is not a fashion accessory.
