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)

Dude, you're a fool. My shop does just as well "in real life" as we do on the internet.
I thought we already clarified this was directed towards Nogram... You resort to name calling, ask to end the discussion, then edit your previous post twenty minutes after the discussion was over. You're an adult, but it seems like you're threatened in some way. I'm getting the feeling you both enjoy voicing your opinion, but you're not into finishing what you started. You should try a megaphone instead of an open forum.

Nice edit.

Mobile home park??? That's for those doublewides and fancy abodes.

Thanks for the compliment. I didn't realize I was worthy.

What is your opinion on the Nitto dream handlebar? I want to swap the stock track bars on my Pista and the Nitto's look classy and match the chrome contact points the bike currently. I really wanted something with flat/wing tops, but they aren't necessary.

Also, do you prefer OFF!'s first 4 EP's or the full length album?

I've never made a single claim about any of these criteria on this forum. In fact, I'm a successful accountant and on occasion consult a locally owned bike shop. Making assertions about what I don't know regarding how a retail business survives or thrives is certainly foolish on your part.

I'm sure there are better forums if you want to discuss microeconomics.

I have those bars on my BK and like them a lot. The drop is nice without being too deep and the upper bends offer a decent hand position even without using hoods.

I like everything they've put out but if I had to pick, I'd choose the four EPs.

That WAS me finishing what I started (and you're just bummed because I'm right).

If you really want more, come by the shop sometime.

Define hardcore. The lines are pretty blurry these days.

Good point. Take the definition as broadly as you like. My guess is that if you recommend it, it will probably fit within my definition.

Me too. Those first 4 eps are intense.

Meh. Without getting into too much detail, someone who got fired from Leader last year now works for State. It's pretty obvious, huh?

You can buy a real 725 frame, Alpina fork and ZS-3 headset for around 40 bucks more.
