    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    Says in the listing that he won't ship. If you're not near Philly, you're SOL on that one!

    That would work! 350 bucks is a good deal.

    EDIT: After the vacation my wife planned to Dominican Republic! LMFAO

    I WILL have one of those blue bikes, sooner or later.

    I'm in Jersey BTW, so posting that ad was really wrong!

    Scrod, Did you remove or paint over the chrome that was on the bottom of the front fork or did yours come black?

    I like how he lists some of the stuff that came stock on the bike as "upgrades". Also, I dig risers but those silly little bars have to go!

    But it's a "super fast and really fun fixie!" What else do we need?

    I know. There's yours and I think one other blue one in the pic thread. I cant stand light blue, but that bike is just ridiculous. I'd set it up just like yours white tires, etc but maybe bullhorns with white wrap....and a brake. lol

    Yup, I've got a brake.

    I've never really been fond of blue bikes either...until I saw the '08 Madison. Thanks for the compliment!

    So after my "jackass question" im riding fixed for the first time if you dont know what im referring to look it up and get a lol in. Its ****ing SWWWEEEET funnest thing ive done in a long time riding fixed is way better then i ever imagined. I even picked up track standing in a matter of minutes, I guess skateboarding and being a muay thai fighter helped me with balance. But anyway I prob rode about 10 miles and was scared of it being very difficult but I didn't even need to touch my breaks once, maybe there being any cars on the road helped but maaaad fun.
