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)

Give me dimensions and I'll do a budget estimate! Although with Hurricane Charley ripping through the area, the price of wood is going to skyrocket again!

16 feet riding width and 410 feet riding length. No clue on how much wood for the support.

plywood is very expensive right now, maybe you could poor epoxy over something for the surface? Where are you at I would go in on it.

Probably not, but if you make a few careful alterations to your frame pump you could be golden with the ladies.

Sure, I will loan you the money. I've done so many colostomy surgeries this year that I have been making an obscene amount of money.

My wife, Hizzan Azman, will require me to charge you interest of 15% a year, though. My daughter Biahn Azman is going to MIT next year, and I am looking for solid investment returns.

My brother, Uppyor Azman once borrowed much money from me without interest, making my father, Yurran Azzman quite mad with me.
