    I think they should have gotten different rims to match each shoe.

    What else would you expect? Fixed gears are trendy for the demographic that UO targets. I think the bigger question is why does that cat have his drivetrain on the wrong side.

    BikeSnobNYC has been heading down hill since about week 3.

    Wasn't this already posted?

    And really, who cares? Like someone said in the comment section of trackosaurusrex on the post about the same thing... everyone knew it was all over when Puck appeared on the Real World?

    Oh yeah and BSNYC keeps doing the same tired jokes over and over, it's a bit old now... it's always something about Cipollini, Rock Racing, fixed gear freestylers that wear bandannas over their faces... I think it started going downhill early '08.

    I am sorry but that album is way too good to let one word ruin it.

    The CHAINSET is on the left because some dumb photographer flipped the image so that it would look better in the layout. He/She knows as much about fixed as UO.

    I think I just threw up in my mouth a little bit. Have I seriously been living under a rock for a year or two? I really had absolutely no idea that fixed gear was "trendy". I thought people who rode FG did it because it's a good alternative to gearing, that is efficient and easy to maintain. Proved me wrong.

    It's really more of a bad alternative to gears generally. Unless you happen to live in a city, then it's a trendy alternative to gears.
