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)

Would you want to kill a hipster if: "a hipster on a bike flew at me yelling, 'No Brakes! Get out of the Way!'"?

mr/mrs hipster could just be standing next to me and I would want to...now put 'em on a bike yelling mouthcrap like that...U-lock to the mandible. Plus then I would have a new mesh/foam hat and t-shirt from Urban Outfitters once removed from the body. I would look so cool. Now I just need to secure a credit card from my parents and getted hooked on junk (I heard heroin was the coolest drug lately).

I could stand to lose 20 pounds. Meth and a bike and I'm sure I'll lose it real quick. Can I still be a posenger if I run a front brake?

If he is referring to zip codes, all 10x codes are in the city. Suffolk and Nassua Counties are on Long Island and start at 11x(I think). Ill do more research and get back to you.
