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)

When I was a kid the only thing they had on nickelodeon was "You can't do that on television." I don't even think Ren and Stimpy were a thing until I was in highschool. I've never even heard of doug.

Coincidentally, Doug first aired the same day as Ren and Stimpy. Back to back, even.

There you go. I only knew about Ren and Stimpy from having a little brother.

It's a Flyxii Fr-302 aka Chinarello. I had it professional fitted to me as best as it could be done. The LBS said it was one size too big for me. I use it for commuting and long distance rides.
