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)

in this one, maybe people will start criticizing your crossposting.

ask a mod to clean up a thread, don't just make another one. this is a lose/lose situation.

it's not necessarily that we're all a bunch of *******s, its more just that we aren't 14 year olds from ladera ranch.

oh snap! photo essay!










I know you guys are flaming this guy, but you don't understand what he goes through on a day to day basis.
In a place like Ladera Ranch, kids have to form crews to survive.
Their way of life is a hard, gritty, and constant struggle for respect, money to eat, and living under the strong fist of the law.
They have to do unspeakable things just to put food on their families.
Many face addiction and crime in addition to the everyday hardships of designer eyewear and botox injections.
It is a reality few have the strength to face, and fewer have the stamina to endure.

You can make fun of him all you want but without this 'crew' he wants to form, there is no future for a 14 year old in this kind of society. Ladera Ranch... where you can drive any car you want... as long as it's a BMW 5 series.

Dude... you can't have a 'fixie crew' if you don't have a 'fixie'. And yes, the grammar is a worry.

You shouldn't base you friendships on bike hubs.

Not that much when the person looking to get the shirt dry cleaned spent a lot more than that on the shirt itself I guess.

Hahahahaahaha @cc700. Lovin' it.

The kid definitely needs a krew down there... it's right near Laguna Beach. ****s rough son.

Btw Ladera Ranch, CA has like 5 roads... all of which were probably paved within the last year. Some rough shiz indeed.

</arsehole>

Just get your fixie together and learn to skid and do all the leet tricks and then rock it at your junior high and all the ladies will want you so bad. Just watch Quicksilver with Kevin Bacon, they will be all over you. Take your girl to Hector's hot dog stand.

But really... hah. Just build your bike or buy one or whatever and start riding around and talk to kids at your school and stuff, get em into it.
