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)

Hey if you saw the boil sitting on my cheekbone (aka "ingrown hair follicle" or maybe "irritated botfly larva") you'd be grouchy too!

MKRG: my deepest sympathies;

i get ingrown facial hair on a semi-regular basis, and often will perform minor-surgery
(implementing a needle and forceps) to free the hair.

It's not rocket science - pop the boil with the needle, drain it, then use small tweezers to dig in the hole to grab the hair and pull it out. My dad used to do it all the time (he got them on his arms).

No they were just really hairy. He used to say his hair wasn't too smart and didn't know which way to grow...

I've emailed the lady who runs the auctions, it is a khs complete. If you check out khs's website for the 05 flite 100. It no longer comes with a sugino 75 cranks. it now has truvativ. so the components are the same i guess. good price.
