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)

Spelling lesson

Please people, use the proper word for what you mean.

Peddle = sell or offer for sale from place to place
PEDAL = A lever operated by one's foot that is used to control a machine or mechanism, such as a bicycle or piano

Break = interrupt: terminate; "She interrupted her pregnancy"; "break a lucky streak"; "break the cycle of poverty"
BRAKE = a restraint used to slow or stop a vehicle

There are many more but I am too lazy to write them down. Oh and sorry for wasting your time.

I may be new, but I know forums arent a place for perfect spelling. If i wanted to learn gramtically correct statements I would enroll into an english class... (fml i have to soon anyway). We should all know what the idea of the statement phrase is anyway. Commonsense or no?

Unfortunately my Litespeed "Pisgah" is pronounced "Piss-gaaa". Or is it?

The first time I read a word, my brain's pronunciation of it tends to get stuck in my head forever. I still think "rally" when I see Raleigh, and "peg - ott" when I see Peugeot.

This one gripes me quite a bit:

mixte = meext, not mix-tee

And then people spell it mixtee or mixty or mixtie… Ugh.

Not noticing your sig, that one took me a little bit of thinking to figure out. Did they think it was three L's or something?
