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)

Post Some of your favorite bike websites.

I always find myself in an "internet ritual", I always check the same websites and never seem capable of finding any new bike related websites. Sort of like the kid that won't cross the street to see what's on the other side. So I though it would be cool to see what others are checking out online.

Mine are: Bikeforums, Ebay, Chifg.com

Post your top 3.

A whole bunch. There are so many great bike resources out there. However, my daily checkings are usually:

Prollyisnotprobably
BSNYC
Makergo
Trackosaurus
Fixedgeargallery
FixedVancouver
BFSSFG
Fiximatosis
Craigslist Vancouver > For Sale > Bikes (If only to laugh at monumentally ridiculous prices people want for their ****ty stuff. The occasional good deal can be found, but it's rare)

I can't believe how many of you visit bl*gs written by jerkoffs who spend too much time and money trying to have the coolest bicycles that they spend more time photographing and bl*gging about than riding. It is odd how you've anointed some of the guys as bike gods because they've been at it two years longer than you and have some stupid site of their own.

Fixed gear culture makes me sad sometimes.

Fyxomatosis has great photographs, but after awhile I get tired of how "edgy" and tattooed all the female models and male mechanics are. But, it is still a great site and the photo-stories are usually fun, though I often wish there were better final build close-up pictures. Plus, seeing Melbourne is fun.

Fixed Gear Gallery was a daily stop a few years ago. Now most of the bikes just make me scratch my head.

Here is one for those interested in gear hubs.

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Geared_hub_bikes/

To me a gear hub rear wheel is a natural accessory for a fixed gear or single speed and increases the versatility of the bike considerably. With some prethought the conversion back and forth can be set up to take ten minutes or less.

Oh jeez, I'm sorry about that. But, I was really, really just trying to help you out. That cruel harsh world has ruined another day of yours and what are you going to do about it? Well, I know...you can write a bl*g entry!

Yeah!! C'mon now, tell a bunch of people who don't know you all about, in fine detail, something that happened to you that they don't care about.
