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)

Now available.. "riding fixed" by mayonnaise

Now available. A collection of 8 stories, re edited back to thier original form. Together with photos and images from fellow forum members. Proffessionally laid out, but kept simple to the unwritten fixie ethic. Not fancy, not some slap job, but something tangable. Limited to a hand numbered edition of 200 print copies. You've read them, but here's a way to hold it in your hand, raw, and uncut. Shove it in your bag, put it on your desk, under your pillow read it over coffee, a brew, in a smokey pub, on a street corner with the wind blowing and your legs spent.. Included will be the latest story "every bite left a mark" a preview of which Every Bite Left A Mark (excerpt) is posted up already.

A basic copies cost 3 - 5 dollars (what ever you wanna send), shipping included.. PM me, and we'll turn the deal.

There will be 20 (AND only 20) special editions they will run 15 dollars. Those will contain somethings; extras; detailed and provided by Mayo, and they'll be autographed by Mayo as well.

The Special Edition is a hand numbered, signed copy of "riding fixed". The inner cover will have a smear of chain grease from the Masi (combination of Phil Wood tenacious oil and Tri-Flow) and a CD of music burned from my collection. Many of the songs referenced in the writings will be included on the nearly 70 minutes of music. The music is assembled in 4 themes: 1) Prologue, 2) Out On The Street, 3) Cool Down, 4) Exit. Pop the cd in your discman and head out on a ride (enhanced late night rides work best) or stay in the comfort of your living room and blast your eardrums. First Fixer to post the artist and title of each song wins a prize. $15 includes shipping. 100% guaranteed (if you don't like it I'll burn you any cd from my collection you want: last count I had 756 cds). All proceeds go to Blind Willie McCheese to pay for the printing.

I might be interested in one of the special editions if there are any left available. Since people always tell me I'm special.

Ok, here's the dealo:

Special editions (dwindling supply left) will be a little delayed: they are on thier way to Mayo to be made... special. I've already put that info out to anyone who wanted one prior to going with it. So if you want a special edition, they're gonna ship a little slower than the regulars. Very much worth the wait if you ask me.. but it's up to you.

Bummer note: I don't have paypal. I'm thinking about setting one up, but it's a pain (set up account, put 100 dollars in it to keep it free, etc). So right now, it's a check/cash/money order type of deal.

The regular copies are numbered and ready to be mailed. If you ordered one through me, when I get your check/cash/whatever I will email/PM you and let you know it's on it's way.


William

I think you misunderstood. When I said "stupid Foreigner," I was referring to the band. You know...Lou Gramm...Jukebox Hero, Cold as Ice. I know you got the vinyl stashed under your bed.

Geesh. Some people are soooo sensitive.
