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)

Best/Worst of 2004

A new year is upon us. Before we usher in the new year, join me in reflecting on a year filled with laughter, upset, cheers and tears. A lot of information was posted here this year. Which post was your favorite... or least? Most/least informative/funniest/dumbest...


My vote goes to... Who was in Prospect Park on Sunday? -- Total hipster realness.

Best wishes to all of you for a healthy and happy new year.

I would say any post from "The Wrench", man that guy was the king of comedy... no wait, he was just kind of a d!ck. Well, him and 53 - 11 all the way.

Other than that, I love this forum....

I would say the BEST post that happened this year was the pretzel/thrashin' Thursday ride posts, I met so many cool Philly riders. But thats just me.

Lucklust's "jewelry" slip-up
Matt Gaunt - Got whacked.
2Rodies - Fashion Question
Anything Lobo...seriously. I was waiting for a question like "Which paint is best for keeping my wheels true when I go over curbs at high speeds approaching at a 90deg angle?"
cphfxt (you're a great person bro, but this was TOO funny) - Fashion Question

and one of my fav threads - Show & Tell your ink
good things come from the strangest places.

Where else can people like MERTON figure out that his Chrome bag is not good on a riding mower, or 53-11 can introduce his own face to his ass in one post?

Favorite Thread : There's a Line Through This City (I rarely get things that succinct)
Favorite Post : Saturday is not enough (got me a new set of drops)

Finding out about the Saturday night rides here was a big bonus this forum gave me this year, too... They've been a TON of drunken fun. Well, except for one sober night of fun...

This guy told me he only wears women's clothing and I said "hipster" and he said "I'm not a hipster, I'm just cool".

well, i wouldn't know about that, but it was a lovely little post.

shiznaz is also very funny. also ostro, with the monkey avatar. sometimes i laughed out loud at what they wrote.

come on everybody, share about some times this year when you caught yourself laughing out loud at some of the posts on here. it's not a crime.

I nominate mayo's story that got everyone spun up about Racisim and had Koffee Brown calling anyone who posted in favor of "people who grew up white and scared".

Other than that, I'm just trying to erase the image of Lucklust pierced piehole filler.

Thanks. But I'm turning over a new leaf. I take back ALL the mean things I said to anyone this year in total and complete honesty.*
