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)

Single Speed Outlaw Issue #5 is up

Been real busy lately and haven't had much time to post, but I wanted to let you boys and girls know that Single Speed Outlaw Issue #5 has finally been completed. New design and lots of content about single speeds, fixed gears, beer and music.

Click here to see it. The biggest issue ever.

Rock on brothers and sisters!

Oh, totally. Next week, I'm gonna take the drivetrain off my bike and push myself along with my feet. NO ****ING SPEEDS!


Or I might just weld my fork to my frame. To turn, I'll pick up the bike and pivot, Robo-Cop style. Then we'll call it ONE ****ING DIRECTION!

i retired my oldest pair of chucks yesterday. they used to be dark blue, but now they're purplish-grey. the laces used to be red, but now they're pinkish-grey. the rubber used to be white, but now it's brownish-brown/grey. but a light brownish-brown/grey.

the holes in the soles were becoming a pedaling problem. if my fixie can't get on with my footwear, i retire the shoes. it's funny, b/c i wear my many-holed docs on my fix with little problems, on stompin' days.

oh, yeah. riderx, great online mag, as always. believe it or not, you and sheldon b. have offered me the online encouragement to ride a fixie. my cyclo-snob real-life buddies frown on fixed-gear, b/c it's so faddish. they tried to discourage me. but you, my brother, helped me see the light.

=P

Chucks? I like 'em, but prefer Vans. Been a loyal Vans guy for 20 years.

Punk's an attitude, not a fashion statement - I was running fixed gear and beer in the water bottles. Punk enough for ya'?
