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)

Unobtainium Membership?

Is there an unobtainium membership I have to buy into or win a contest on? because I'm seeing a Big Shot Fixie ad next to the singlespeed fixed gear forum. I thought my titanium membership was ad free?

It only appears on the SSFG front page, but not in threads.

Meh, I don't even care if it's there.

It's called an ad blocker. I haven't seen an add in years, and I couldn't be happier.

When I block the Big Shot ad using Adblocker, it also blocks the little 'fist new post' button and activity icons usually found before the thread titles.

Everyone, we're working on it, as I told you in the other thread, 531phile. It's not supposed to show for premium members, and is being fixed. Bear with us, please, and thanks.

Forgot to mention: I'm closing the thread. I am not going to forget about the issue, though.
