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)

My new tattoo, yes I like them that much

14 hours of traditional Japanese tattooing later... I have been wanting some form of this image on my leg for years and just havent either had the money or knew a person who did traditional japanese work. Anyway it hurt like nothing I have felt before... And yes I am a big sram fan...

by saying you're not passing judgment, you're passing judgment b/c you're implying that there is judgment which could/and is likely to be passed.

I wouldn't walk up to someone and say "not to pass judgment," but what's your favorite color?

BUT, I would, theoretically, walk up to someone and say "not to pass judgment, but when was the last time you took a shower?"

I actually was expecting an Omnomonomnom tattoo from you and for those of you who haven't met bleedingapple, he is a nice guy, very genuine.

I can understand why someone would want to get a traditional Japanese style tattoo done with the traditional Japanese technique. This, however, makes no sense to me.

If you ask cyclist what a chain ring tattoo is, 9 out of 10 will say something other than this.

Traditional Japanese technique tattoo? Are you being initiated into the Yakuza? you gonna cut off the the tip of your pinky next?

If you're Japanese then I'm all for it , otherwise why? eh to each his own

I've thought about getting a chain lube tattoo. Like when you're riding in shorts and you get that mark on your calf in the shape of the chainring...like a semicircle.

No, no and no. I am just a traditionalist when it comes to tattoos and I hate the guns. I believe your suposed to really feel the tattoo getting done and not having instant gratification. That and the connection between your artist and you.

Yea I thought about emailing Sram.
