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)

See! It's **** like that I was talking about in the "Are spoke-cards passť" thread. When people start doing this kind of crap, it makes the real deal stuff seem equally lame.

Mmm..never know when you're going to need jimmies. Question though. Is it worse to have you condoms in your back pocket for a prolonged period of time or in your spokes?

"but baby, I swear I thought those condoms were good! They were just in my bike spokes for a few months in rain and summer heat! I swear."

Next craigslist ad:

Need to sell "fixie" to fund abortion. ASAP

Oh hell yes! Vixtor...thanks for letting me relive this moment of infamy! Brilliant reply. I am still laughing weeks later. Now the world will have Flying Squirrel t-shirts. The flying squirrel to me represents all that ......that.....what the **** does it represent?

Maybe this will help.



I hope that all is clearer now.

Definitions of flying squirrel:

flying phalanger: nocturnal phalangers that move with gliding leaps using parachute-like folds of skin along the sides of the body

It's cheap, it gets you ****ed up, a lot of black people drink it (please don't take this the wrong way) which means hipsters will love it.

I think it's funny how tiny his gearing is since Sacramento is flat as a pancake.
