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)

Anyone got more? This died too early.
Not that we would want to offend adriano's delicate sensibilities any futher.

This was one of the first dates I went on when my wife and I started going out. It was definitely the first time we went biking.
Not one of my finest moments.

I swear to FSM this happened, though it was so long ago. I was about 6 and my lil brother about 5. We rode our bikes up and down the sidewalk in front of our house on our block when we were that age. One time we were coming opposite directions, and neither of us were paying much attention when both of our front tires hit square on. I ended up being pole vaulted over my little brother to land on the sidewalk and I remember my bike landing in front of me a second later. Surprisingly I was not hurt or scraped up by the incident, neither was my brother.

I got hit by a car that didn't give way at an intersection recently. It sucked. At least I'm an artistic genius though.

edit:neither me or the bike were hurt TOO badly, but it did suck.
