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)

Perhaps Heckler and Koch could adapt one of these to a messenger style bag.

The sad thing is that I've already wondered about the feasability of that...

I believe those SMG's fit nicely in most baggy shorts or pants.

Here's one from this book.


The book is pretty good, and you can get a cd of all the CARtoons in high resolution .tiff's. I make t-shirts for myself with 'em.

I just hope the cyclist dented the crap out of the guys car and also hopefully bled all over it. That's usually my plan when i'm out in traffic. I think to myself, these people don't want me to hurt their car.

Remember the guy who went around slashing tires? He sounds extreme until **** like this happens.
