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)

Was about to quote the post and saw this. Images need to be SFW, oh yea . . .

Yes, some aspects of the thread are silly, but sharing excitement about a new bike is encouraged, no?

a thread for a new bike is something along the lines of 'scored rare limited edition pink fillet brazed nagasawa with chrome lugs and 3 seatposts' and not 'bought a pista on craigslist, yay'

for someone who doesnt like my thread, you still take the time to read the responses and give your worthless opinion more than once! sorry my pista doesnt meet your standards, but some people like what they like if you are so butthurt by another pista thread you could just not read the post.

oh grow up killemall.

it's just a thread.


the only reason it's gone on for 40 posts is that dude already has like five other bikes just like it, so it's a little silly that he bought this and not something more varied.

i felt my first post was not insulting you in any way, nor was my second. 'ill pass' and explaining why nobody thinks this is worth its own thread is not negative. you just interpreted it wrong.

& i never said your pista was bad, but its honestly nothing special. do you know how cluttered this forum would be if everyone with a pista (or 3) made a new thread?

'butthurt'. great vocab. i'm out, didn't mean to derail your obviously superior thread.

killem - the 'learn how to quote' edit was aimed at pants-pisser because he failed in quoting you and I fixed it, not you.

I love you all like little brothers and sisters.

Here in coastal MA it's been a nightmare. Cold, windy, rainy and snow on the way. The wife and I are thinking of moving west after the winter.
