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)

New game: guess the part

Here's a game:

One person takes a pic of a part-- any part, as long as it goes on a bicycle.
Everyone else guesses what it is.
Each incorrect guess ups the value of the part by one point.
The first person to guess correctly gets 1) the guess points and 2) a five point bonus for a correct guess.
The part poster gets the guess point.

example:
Rasheed posts a widget. Four people guess, no one gets it correct. The fifth person guesses and correctly identifies it.
Rasheed is awarded four points; the correct guesser is awarded nine.

*you must be specific; "brake" isn't acceptible; "dia-compe royal gran compe" brake is.

I'll start:



not expecting many to play, but i'm bored and thought it might be cool, at least until i'm not bored anymore.

Close, but no cigar. The tensioning wrench is the seldom-seen NJS version.

maybe if the part was in focus, instead of the background.

Wait, "headtube extension adapter" is good enough? Weren't we required to provide a make and model? I mean, I've been poring over several years' worth of QBP catalogs trying to find that exact adapter, and soil_sampler takes it away from me with a general description that may just as well have been "metal tube." I was all excited about this game, but now I'm not so sure.
