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)

today i was pulling back into the driveway. I happened to hit a patch of water just before my skid stop and ran right into the garage door, luckily no damage to me or bike or door. so not worth mspaint time but was funny for sure.

Thanks to Ubuntu I no longer have MS Paint, so I figure Tux Paint is more or less the same thing.

I've got a doozy of a mishap. Been reserved about posting it because it's so embarrassing. Delivering soon.

Happen to me about a 2 weeks a go, lady wasnt paying any attention at the stop sign and bumps in to me. I almost crapped my pants, I was so shaken up about to kill the blind *****.
The guy that swirved to the left witnessed everything, pulled over and helped me up, called the cops, my thigh and knee was bruised big time.
The crazy ***** tried to leave before the cops got there, but the the guy who helped me out wouldnt let her. She got a few tickets for what she did and I rode away in pain.
Thank God for that guy who was nice enough to come and help and convict the biotch
