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)

What I learned today...

being later for school is better than taking a ride on the hood of a car. wait for your light to turn green at major intersections. yikes.

anyone want to share theirs?

Wait what? You're advocating...following the rules of the road?!?!

INCONCEIVABLE!

*awaits the flame fest of people who are going to ream this guy because he thinks running red lights at a major intersection is a bad idea*

Don't get too close to the arm that comes down when a train crosses the road. I right behind an ice cream truck who decided to squeeze through the lowered gates while a train was coming. He hit the arm and it smacked that rear mirror (the big round one so they can see and not back over kids)

The mirror basically exploded and glass went everywhere and all over me. Dumb ass.
