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)

gf or fg???????

alright so this is kinda a spin off of the "riding my fg makes me happy" but i have been riding my fg lately and my gf is getting kinda mad that i dont ever bike down to see her at work . i love them both so much and lately i have been choosing my fg. anyways after a couple more weeks of this, i come home to our apartment and my fg tires were slashed, i mean OMFG i had to buy a whole bunch of **** to fix this. and so far the only suspect i have is my gf.

then i was riding and i put some weight on my handle bars going up a hill and they flipped over nearly causing me to crash

do u guys think my gf could be SABOTAGING my bike or is it just crappy luck.....

what do u guys think i should do, and dont just post "dump that *****" or whatever, i need serious advice here

You seem to have made an enemy somewhere... I don't think the gf is that enemy.

This is one of the dumbest threads I've read on here. Perhaps dumber than my own.

If you're not trolling, why are you posting about this here? This has nothing to do with the bicycle. If your partner is destroying your property because she is angry with you, that's a very bad sign.

If were going to try and stop dumb threads, there will be precious little to read here.

Uh, why don't you just bike down to see your gf at work?

You'd be riding your fg (good) and making your girlfriend happy (good).

Kick the ***** to the curb.

If you two are the only ones living in the apartment and you come home to slashed tires and loose handlebars, then she's the likely culprit.

Serious advice? Dump the *****. Sure, she has every right to be irritated if you're choosing your bike over time with her, but if she's crazy enough to go wrecking your stuff you should kick her arse to the curb before you wake up one morning with your nads superglued to your leg.

I going to close this thread because it's either trolling or really ignorant. At any rate, I'd ask that these inane threads not be started here. Raise the level of discourse, people.
