Internet bike kids!!
So my friend had just broken his chain, which was crazy and another story in itself. Bottom line was that he got himself stopped impressively fast and we walked the rest of 10 blocks to where we were headed. Then when we get there, this guy comes out of the bar as we're locking up and says...
"How do you break a chain on a fixie??" then looks at the bike a little closer. "Ohhh.
It's a conversion.
We both just looked at him like he was an idiot and then as he's walking away, he yells back, "NJS dude! Live by it!" and pounds his fist on his chest.
The funniest part is that I've seen this guy before and he does have an all-NJS bike. Except for the frame, which appears to be a Kilo TT
. And he has no bar ends or wrap, and no brake, and I almost always see him cruising at like 5 MPH on the sidewalk.
I think I've gotta blame the internet for this guy.
