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)

Picture for 165:44:16 (aka Airforce homeboy)

Per your wittingly stated response to the downhill broken strap story:

The bike is now equiped with the name.

(I've never had a nickname before, but somehow, I think this one's gonna stick).

You know how long it takes me to defeat the spell check of computers.. and how much I work to misspell things in a way to simply annnoy the pendatics of the forums?

( It takes work, I tell you, it takes work).

Yeah, even if you were around, we wouldn't see a real one, now would we?

You're the guy who brought it up, and you seem to know all the hierarchy to but sniffing. Seems to me you're a little toooo familiar with it. Projecting? Reminscing? Fantasy? I don't know, it's free country and you're a cool guy and all, but if you could keep me out of the goat/dog/anal sniffing, I'd really be more comfortable.

OK, no problem. Didn't mean to get your panties up in a bunch. But as beta, you get sniffed first, so whatever alpha does is up to to him. Sorry but I have nothing to do with it.

Now you're projecting me wearing underwear of the opposite sex, and someone else performing "un named" actions on me..

Then the disclaimer that you have nothing to do with it.

Don't make creative suggest... and then clammer out with a "I'll have nothing to do with it."..

I mean, you are what you are, and we all accept you.

You're ok.

Really. You are.

You're a nice guy and people like you.

They do.

Wear panties, sniff butts. It's all good, if it's good for you.

It's the irony of the irony.

So, in effect, it's alumininiminium. Or rust.

I won't call you stupid. I'll call you...
