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)

If I'm ever made President of Earth, I'm going to make online videos of any physical activity featuring some ****ty punk song illegal and punishable by death.

I saw this posted in commuting, living car free, or A&S the other day. It's crazy what people will do for that stuff!

The saddest part of that is most of the cars in that line were SUVs or Trucks. That's Texas for ya, every dill-hole around has to drive a huge vehicle by themselves to show off how masculine they are.

I'd love to have seen this video in it's entirety, however the music made that completely impossible.

Actually that was in Atlanta. The whole part of the country is having gas shortages. We here in Texas actually had our prices drop since Ike.

Yep, I'd get into a car if it was two miles away, too, if I was in the burbs. You've been in the city too long, killer.

You also probably don't race bikes either.

To be fair to us, we don't mean gas as in gas/liquid/solid. More like gas as in gasoline http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gasoline

Gasoline.

Why do you call trunks "boots"? ITS A STORAGE COMPARTMENT ON A CAR NOT A PROTECTIVE FOOT COVERING DEVICE!
