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)

I hope she'll find it; always check local CL, you/she could also post at the local fixed forum.


Very adorable kitty.

Damn that sucks, especially it being titanium, I've always envied titanium bikes but never committed to one. ~Check your local flea markets and swap meets ASAP, the following weekend. Good luck.

Goddamn, that sucks. I hope you find it, and best of luck. All I can really think of is craigslist here; check the CL's of surrounding areas as well, because oftentimes bike thieves will travel in these bike-stealing vans and snatch a bunch up in one night and take them elsewhere to sell later on. Check shady-looking bike lots advertised on craigslist. If you're lucky enough to find it, or even if you're not, check out Krypto locks. Not suggesting you didn't lock your bike, but thieves tend not to mess with those.

A stolen bike thread is totally enough to ruin your night on biekforumz :'(
