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)

But carbs won't fatten you up that much.

BTW: I was at Yojimbo's like 10 minutes after you left last weekend. Saw your new Bianchi. Very nice. Don't leave that unlocked or Jesus will have to tell somebody else a nice story full of meaning.

sounds like you mixed up the number for the lbs with the pet shop down the street.
or the person that answered the phone just wanted to make you uncomfortable...?

I'm reporting you all to that devilishly clever mod, [165]. He's going to tell all of you about my untimely demise!

Oh yeah, I might as well make no sense whatsoever too.

My LBS has kittens, but none of them are big enough for my puppies.
