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)

Wait - are we being trolled? That seatpost is a dead giveaway. If not, then it's thread posts like this that give us SS/FG riders a bad rap.

It's been raining here for three days straight so today I busted out the crappy rain beater and blasted a bunch of sick rain skids all over town until I was soaked to the bone and my legs were sore. Then I came home, made a mojito, woofed down some homemade ginger lime beef jerky that had been in the dehydrator all day and took a little nap with two of my three cats. We made grilled eggplant sandwiches for dinner (which were ****ing delicious) and now I'm about to go watch 'Gangs of New York' because I've never seen it all the way through. Maybe I'll eat some ice cream too. Why the **** not?

1. All the food you make sounds ****ing delicious. You need a culinary thread. Stickied too?

2. Amazing movie. Reasons you haven't seen it all the way through?

Well...that's not entirely true. He can get up on the bed, he's just really unsure of himself when jumping down so he steers clear of it. He weighs 23 lbs.

The nap was unintentional. I laid down just to stretch out for a few minutes and just dozed off.

All my cats get the love, man. They're spoiled rotten.

Seriously. He's a big boy. Angie and I always joke that if we're ever starving, he'll be the first to go.

He's not just fat though...he's a BIG CAT.

My fat black cat weighed 25 pounds last time I weighed him. Although he is fat, he's also just a big cat.
