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)

It's a shame Craigslist stopped the
"Best of Craigslist posts".
That ad is damn funny.

Gonna archive here, no pics though, it's just a Trek T1...

"Holy ****, boys! Is that a ****ing Trek T1 Fixie? Uh yeah, you can bet every last one of your ass hairs it is. You're all "I'm not a trek guy" well check it out, dude. Remember that part in Terminator 2 at the end where Arnold is all "now i know why you cry?" and they lower is ass into a caldron of molten metal? Well this frame is made out of that metal. Its a (whatever that caldron was filled with)/terminator/human and terminator tear alloy. That may or may not be true. Who knows where or how metal is made any way? No one. What I do know is this ****ing cock sucker has custom DT swiss RR 1.2 rims laced to Paul high flange hubs. They were meticulously crafted by Carl Weathers (the buff black guy that gets his arm blown off at the end of predator). "What kind of cranks does it have?" Who ****ing cares? You do, and so do I. That's why I put a 49t Sugino 75 on there. Don't have legs? That's ok... Actually it's not. Go **** yourself you legless ****. But there is hella more tight **** on this bike. Like a bladed carbon Felt seat post and Specialized Roman saddle which is hella comfortable. When I'm not riding, I mount my Roman saddle on a pole in my living room and post up in front of my TV, flip it to the hallmark channel, and watch hours of Golden Girls marathons. That's real talk, my goose babies. So that's probably all the cool **** on this bike, right? ****ing dead mother ****ing wrong. There's also Profile design cobra wing handle bars. Just take a second to think about that. A cobra with wings. No one is safe in a world where cobras have wings. raining venom from above. That is a harsh reality, man. Fortunately for the entire world this isn't a literal cobra with wings, instead it's the sickest possible bar that you could put on a modern style fixie. I digress, because there is other bull**** to talk about on this bike. There is a cane creek headset, Soma pedals with leather straps(I think it's panther leather, but can't confirm), and a SRAM gold chain. The gold chain is tight because if you are the kind of ******* that likes wearing gold chains you can just take this off your bike and throw it around your neck, put some sunglasses on indoors and *boom* you're set. You should wash the grease off first though, otherwise you'll stain your Ed Hardy shirt, we all know what a bumout that is. So if you like hella awesome ****, this bike is probably for you. Oh yeah, It's a 56cm. I'm 8'5 350lbs, all muscle, so it rides a little small for me. It's also a fixed gear. shred "


And then the tags -

"Tags: Jingle all the way, Terminator 1, 2, and 3 Last Action Hero, Predator, Total Recall, Twins, Junior, Kindergarten Cop, Conan the Barbarian, Commando, The Running Man, The Eraser, Collateral Damage, Farts, Catfood, Get to the chopper!!!"

Brilliant! I didn't even read the tags. Also, thanks for posting the text Sherblock -It'd be a shame to lose that after 7 days...

People's misuse of the term "hipster" drives me nuts.

I'd agree, this is clearly someone just making a joke... anyone could have done it, he just chose a T1 as the subject.
