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)

Fun With Flash

For a while, a friend and myself have been kicking around ideas for an Atlanta bike site. He made this flash intro for it.

I thought ya'll would enjoy it.

[Disclaimer] My guess is that this is not the “appropriate” place for this, but it seems (and I feel) that this is just a space that we have taken. I don’t really look at the other parts of the forum (except the mechanical section).

I asked my friend who did the flash work. He said:

"Chalk? I guess. I just f**ked around with the settings until I got
something I liked..."

Sorry not much help. I don't know Flash too well.

I dig it. The only thing that bothers me is the lack of chainstays on the bike...

Definitely well done. Lack of chainstays and the redundancy of "SUV" written on the side of the vehicle are the only shortcomings.
