    And its "Fixed geared bikes" not "Fixed gears" if you want to refer to them in the plural form. If we had "Fixed gears" then we would have more than one and then it would be a geared bike after all. YA DOLT!

    My geared bike is as stupid as my fixed gears though. After careful examination I've concluded that neither of em seem to know much about anything.

    The search for a smart inanimate object continues!

    And it's "it's".
    And it's "fixed-gear".
    I suppose a flip-flop hub could be considered fixed-gears.
    ...just sayin'.
    "Tanks" for playing. And enjoy your parting gift-two armloads of peer-group humiliation.

    it always blows my mind when we get a troll in the ssfg forum, because my gut reaction about who would be a troll tells me that it's all us ****ers here in the ssfg forum that are the most likely to go troll others.

    god help us if we are trolling ourselves...
    before posting, a "noob" should always ask themselves "could this have been answered by first visiting Sheldon Brown

    bikes are stupid in general... I don't even know why I still post here.

    Started off on bmx.
    Moved to MTB.
    Then got a road bike.
    Then a conversion.
    Then a track bike.
    Then a tarck bike.
    Then said screw it and started walking.
    Then realized my shoes were holding me back and went barefoot and reached a new plateau of Zen.

    Shoeless walking is the new fixed gear. You are in contact with your true environment. Wheels, rubber, chain all interfere with being true to yourself. Split lanes barefoot or go home. NBD. end of discussion. delete forum.

    Dig Reeder's gone. This was like his suicide note to all of us who still have the balls enough to ride fixies on the road. Oh, Dig. We'll miss you. Coast in peace.
