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)

she used to mind

At least you guys have a garage...I live in a small one bedroom apartment in Philly, its just me, my cat and 9 bikes. hahahaha. I tried putting hooks on the ceiling, but after a while I got a little nervous about ALL the hooks and the weight on the ceiling (didnt want my upstairs neighbor moving in).

My girlfriend used to make comments about how my bedroom is the "bikeroom" but she stopped complaining when I garbagepicked a raleigh frame and converted it into a singlespeed for her out of all the spare parts. I also fixed up her heavy mountain bike and donated that to someone who was donating their car to cancer... now she likes my bike fetish.

she still doesnt like the clutter, but oh well...there are not many places 9 bikes can go as well as boxes of "spare" parts.




*****oops, I thought I was replying to a thread about too many bikes...but instead I started a new thread...I am a dummy, dont mind me....ugh*****

Don't worry, it happens to the best of us. But what did they expect, putting the buttons so close together like that
