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)

Hahhahaha. There's still a huge skid mark in the carpet from another night. But leave it to me to run into the one outwardly hinged door in the hall.

If you flip someone off you had better be prepared to pull over and settle it

^^ I try to avoid trackstanding on long red light for this reason. I'm not a master at it yet so I'm always afraid of this happening.

Fortunately hasn't happened yet

yeah, I don't see why Sheldon has beef with it. I've been doing it since I was like 9. Although it is a bit tricky with a fixed gear.

Haha nice! For some reason our carpets don't mark up, but i was visiting a friend at Boston University over spring break and skidded her whole tile dorm hallway, one of the best feelings ever until i looked behind me and saw that i ruined the floor.
