    That's exactly how I feel!



    But I really want a Cinelli Mash, Super Pista, 2011 Leader 725, or a Raleigh Macaframa frame.

    With a Chub Hub and HED3.

    i have just as much fun on my cheap bikes with cheap parts as any one i've ever seen on one of their abovementioned frames have.

    and i am faster than a lot of them when i street race, too. not that i like bragging.

    I like smashing on people with significantly higher gear ratios.
    like the time I was with the front of the pack on a down hill, other people were running 48-14/15/16 and I was on a 19. First time anyone noticed my spins.

    Then last night a bunch of kids on 52/16. I matched them on the down hills and managed to kill them on the up hills.

    to me, spinning is much more impressive than giant gear ratios and mashing.
    Seeing someone spinning like the roadrunner with a totally still upper body is superrr kewl

    *deep breath*

    I like colorful bikes.....done right.
    I like spokzzzzz even though they are the thing to do to be cool.

    I bought a bike slightly too big for me because i wanted a Peugeot.
    Yes, i like steel conversions over buying a new frame.

    Haha! The red rims are on their way out. My black ones came in, just waiting on hubs. I'm still not totally convinced I want a rear chub hub.

    I think fixed gears are a stupid trend, but really enjoy riding them.
    I'm in a very serious bike polo club and I'm not quite sure how i actually feel about the sport itself. It's good fun though.

    Back in my bmx racing//mountian biking days I used to think that road bikes were completely ridiculous due to their limited terrain. now im barely interested in riding a bike unless is carbon on 23's. The only time I ride my mtb is when the wife wants to go out (so I dont loose her).

    i've never ridden fixed (i've been building my first fg ride over the winter, thanks for all the great info you guys and galls post on the BF)

    riding fixed scares me a little

    I like paired spokes

    I ride in the middle of my lane, and keep pace with all the motorists who yell at me just to prove i'm not slowing them down and deserve the space just as much as they do.

    I haven't had a bike for almost a year. Yesterday, I bought a frame I couldn't afford and carried it down Market Street in SF during Friday evening rush hour, being passed by a ton of cyclists traveling the opposite direction, all while wearing a shirt from the bike shop where I used to work, so I could get a ride in my dad's truck.

    I'm a jackass.

    once it has its own wheels, you'll be the first to know.

    The only reason I would build a conversion would be for a simple commuter with rear rack and front basket with a dingle cog. other than that Im not a fan of them. I like dual brake levers and brakes on fixed gears.I hate riser bars. I enjoy my dirty steamroller rather than squeaky clean steamroller.

    LOL nobody follows it, even weekend carbon warriors. I don't even. UC police doesn't even enforce it.... it's funny how bike racks are located within no bicycle riding places, it's not like they expect us to get off our bikes and walk it to the rack.

    The same goes for skateboarding and scooters.

    Haha in my hall we have a bunch of people riding fixed and now there are skids in the carpet...it is much fun to have indoor skidding contests. I think the cleaning people hate us but oh well...
    And yea my favorite incident was watching a kid crash into the "walk your bike sign"


    Confession tho(or maybe just a dream)...i want a axle driven fixed gear bike...the concept seems sooo cool
