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)

What's your bike's name?

A lot of people name their cars. Does your bike have a name? What? Why? Pic?

Agreed. It's a bike, dude. If you want to name something, go buy a goldfish. Or knock up your girlfriend.

mine is named "my beyonce" it was named that by a cop who either "a" couldn't write, or "b" couldn't read.
I was unconscious and taken to a e.r. on christmas eve after crashing my bike.
I got a police report from the cops that says
"left his beyonce with hospital security."







we all know if had a Beyonce, i wouldnt leave it anywhere
here is the detailed version of that story

Named because of the scene in the Life Aquatic when Jeff Goldblum hits the dog.

Subdural hematoma is cool. I don't think of my bike as a person. But, my friend and sidekick.

Hm. I don't name my bike. But recently my female friends have been calling it the "cherry popper" since I have this rock hard seat that every time someone borrows my bike, they end up in pain. Just thought it was funny...

Diversity. It was an old old wooden ship.

I actually don't have a name for it, but I have joked around and called it that before.
