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)

What a very exact measuring of the table height. Also, why was there a glass topped table in a back alley?

Probably got thrown out, it was near an apartment...I thought I was going to make it over. I don't know how high the table was, probably around 2 feet.

Old people shouldn't drive, I got t-bone'd by an old lady back in February...I didn't break any bones or anything, just sprained my wrists, busted my lips and bruised my hip.

It's good that you didn't suffer any really serious damage. I would definitely support mandatory driving tests upon reaching certain ages.

^ I don't entirely understand what happened in the second half, but I like how you're vomiting purple speech bubbles in the first panel.

The second part has nothing really to do with the mishap, it just happened to be what happened after I crashed. I was having fun with paint

According to that pic, your bike is not just "not locked properly" but instead, not locked at all.
