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)

I'm Scorpio but I'm backed up into Libra because of the thing. I don't quite get it.

I was fixed on riding fixed, but now I'm thinking SS. Oh SSFG, I think I may be a Capri-bro, now.

You know, up for anything, but enjoys a night at home on the couch, not riding bikes.

Off what topic? There is a hijacked (although silly)thread about speaking/writing in various dialects and guitars going on, this seems about as relevant.


I was an aires, on the cusp of Taurus. Now I am two fish getting down with eachother. I ride single speed around town and haven't actually noticed any wobble (unless I've been drinking, then of course I am walking my bike )

I don't think the new sign thing will affect any of us in the Western world and Europe.

So I am still Scorpio and you are still an Aries.

See I have heard have heard that too, but I've never been into astrology.



My horoscope today says to take life more seriously, but only a little.

The new signs only affect people born after 2009. I don't know why people are making such a big deal out of it.

People don't like changes; some learn to adapt and others just b***h about it.

I thought the others just died out. Like the wooly mammoth. And non genetically altered corn. And bees.



I guess wooly mammoths aren't people. Bees probably aren't either, I haven't checked yet.

I was more or less talking about changes from a sociological/psychological point of view.

Oh, well then!

Some b* about things always being the same. The good news is that in 5 years people in japan will have cloned the wooly mammoth. Why does his matter? I have heard that a pair of mammoth tusks can be converted into a fixed gear/single speed build.






The first time we realized that the aero wheel may indeed be a chick magnet:
