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)

Anyone ever seen this?



Its a delightfully cheesy 80's movie about Kevin Bacon being a messenger. Thought you guys might like it.

Wait, I thought Kevin was doing a market trader. I wouldn't say it's cheesy. ... Cheesy in the sense that finance don't work like that no more. ... But ladies in dancing outfit (of 80s) totally counter-balanced that. These days, I grew up so I am totally good with more explicit outfit, you know like swimming suits. I got ruined watching Bay Watch. ... Ah, my days of youth, all so misguided, I know.

I'm pretty sure many people on this forum saw this already, I even remember a thread about this movie.


I am more excited for Joseph Gordon Levitt's Premium Rush, just because I am a huge fan of Joseph after 500 days of Summer and Inception <3

I love Zooey Deschanel and her music, and her husband's music as well.

As a newish member fo BF I would encourage you to use the search function. Not being a dick, just telling you how to avoid people being a jerk to you.

Posting this is not unlike going to a NASCAR forum and asking if anyone had heard of "Days of Thunder".
