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)

What do you mean "dismount"? Ohhh....you ride your bike? We all just take pictures of our bikes around here! To each his own, I suppose.

Well they are called track drops, not coffee shop drops, garage drops, or even stuffed-in-the-back-of-a-closet-and-never-pulled-out-except-to-take-pictures-for-bikeforums.net drops.


here is mine, yes, a crappy indoor iphone shot. maybe i'll take it outside for a shot tomorrow. Oh wait, it hasn't been above freezing here in weeks, so i will probably forget while i am trying to figure out where i dropped my nose while riding to work...

I kinda wish i could find a bluye and white super pista to replace this once i find a home for it (slightly to large for me, yes the stem and seat post comment are welcome bwahahaha), i like the color scheme.

not much to say about the panasonic except that it would make a great geared bike haha.

maybe rotate your bars back? then you probably wouldn't need to have your saddle so far foward

edit: i mean bridgestone. durrr

Because the spelling of Bridgestone and Panasonic are so similar, I can see how it would be really easy to mistake one for the other.

Bridgestone- Toe straps don't match saddle/bar tape, go die.

Sticker mess- Leather saddles on beater bikes make me question a lot of things. Also, TT protector looks half-assed. Also, sticker mess. Good job on handlebars though.

Ahem, I'm done.

Also WTF sticker bike, It would help if you included an itemized list of which stickers you have so we can judge you on specific stickers.

im liking it but think the all black wheel looks out of place....well it makes sense color wise, but feels black heavy in the back of the bike. i think to balance it out i would do all black cockpit...that or try the front gray tire on back and black up front
