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)

Rancid - you a Corpsman?

I thought the Navy slogan was, "What do you want for dinner?"

Ask Karstens...he'll know it.

One mans trash is another mans fixie
Your bike is broken
I am not a shifty cyclist
your bike is shifty
One gear to rule them all!
You can have too many gears but never enough beers
No gears, no brakes, no problem
Ill fix it even if its not broken

I would like a shirt!

I gave up gears, brakes and sanity and all I got was this lousy t-shirt
Look Ma, no brakes!
Do you believe in life after gears?
Another lame excuse for a subculture...
A picture of a gelded horses balls with a large rubber band around them, with the word FIXED stamped beneath.
Any bootlegged images from the motion picture "Cannonball Run".
A picture of Lance with the words HALF A FIXIE written below.
A picture of Wilt Chamberlain with the words NOT FIXED written below
That's the best I can do on short notice.

no fair stealing my sig. quote. I made it up all on my own.
All the refrences to castration are making this a little male-centered.
Although I have to say that the "my cog is smaller than yours" is pretty damn funny.

My bad. I don't read sigs much. Although I've smoked my fair share of cigs. We can split the money that we're gonna get paid for the use of the slogan if it's chosen. Sound good? I'm sure we'll be able to buy some pie or something.
