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?

Out of the loop

Its been a while since I posted on here. In between moving from Hawaii to the Bay and working to much and riding motorcycles and skateboarding, I haven't rode a bicycle in a little while. But now I've moved to Atlanta and there is a velodrome only a few miles away.

Forget the bag. You should be asking what tires you need to replace the ones that are dry rotted.

No, the messenger bag definitely comes first.

I'd get a Timbuk2 if I were you. They're kind of hard to find though.

i have a timbuk2 and a chrome. i like the chrome a lot better - hugs your body better and the fact that the chrome is mossy oak let me exercise the inner redneck in me.

Don't bother with a Timbuk. The ones from the Gap are much better.

Ha! yeah the bag line was a joke. I know how everyone in here gets about them. I don't need a bag, just a bike.
