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)

chicago based question - BIKE LICENSE PLATE?

This is a longshot but I'm looking for somewhere in Chicagowhere I can have a small bicycle license plate made. I just bought a tandem bike from this guy on Craigslist and it's kinda a suprise for my lady.

I need something custom...

PS - The tandem is technically a single speed. Two chains yet one speed. One chain & one goofy ass bike to rule, uh...you get the idea...

Thanks!

- Eric

Try any local jails? Cook County? California and 26th or so?

Well I was planning on doing some "Death Race 2000" inspired runs on the tandem...

Just imagine the point I'd score for runnin' down a flock of nuns...

So I guess once I'm processed & have my mug shot taken with the bike (oh, and it'll submit that to FGG so fast if they have WI-FI at CCC...), then I can start mintin' those plates.

Seriously, I want one that says "F*NGERBANG". But if that won't fit I'll settle for "FNGBNG".

You can buy plastic state-specific ones from Toys'r'us for several bucks. You can either get ones with your name on it or ones that come with adhesive letters for full customization.

Nice!

Thanks for the heads up!

I'm there tomorrow. Plus that would cheap. And if "FNGBNG" got old I could always change it to "MUFDIVR".
