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 guess it's not that big, but it's still a kinda weird spot to take a pic of your bike.

the music matches the weapon. and if you notice the bike's being held where another equally "exotic" (fake) weapon should go

I've got the same cranks on my bike, watch out for pedal scrape (tipping your toe up helps).

Yah...that pedal/clip/strap combo dosnt go very far...I highly suggest getting some MKS pedals/Soma doubles/double clips....works like a charm.

MKS GR-9s are really great, and only $30. I fell in love with my friend's soma doubles, and now I want some

A lot of the "weapons" I have are indeed for display only, but theres nothing fake about the Paul Chen Katana that usually hangs where the bike is, Ill put it up against any katana you might have any time your ready. also my taste in music is mine, not yours, thats why they are MY cds. and remeber, "BE WHO YOU ARE AND SAY WHAT YOU FEEL, BECAUSE THOSE WHO MIND DON'T MATTER AND THOSE WHO MATTER DON'T MIND"

Ive been taking pics of my bikes in that spot since day one, its just a good spot for me is all, and the tv really isnt that big its just a 37 inch, never needed to "upgrade" as its the perfect size for my living room, Im not one of those "my tv is bigger than yours" kinda guy, Im very secure in my manhood for that kinda BS
