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)

It is funny, but as someone who played paintball for awhile, it's still easy to recognize a bad idea. Calling the cops would result in the one guy getting charged with bike theft (not a super serious offence) and the other guy getting charged with assault with a weapon. If he hits someone in the eye and blinds them he'll find himself in even more trouble.

I'd do it for the lulz. I've never played paintball, so I cant really connect the amount of pain that this would cause.

I DONT CARE IF ITS A 15 YEAR OLD KID OR A 45 YEAR OLD MAN....IM NOT GOING TO HAVE ANY REMORSE FOR THEM WHEN I DO THIS AND PLAN ON CALLING THE POLICE AND GIVING A DESCRIPTION OF..."man limping down ***street covered in bright orange paint just tried to steal my bike" i figure if i get 10 people with this that will make them think ALOT harder before trying it again!
from YOUR BIKE BEEN STOLEN? (downtown)

when the bike thief approches it would be a lot better if he jumped out from a dark corner dressed as a huge bike and try to stuff the guy into a giant potato sack.
