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)

You didn't see the garbage pile. It looked like they cleaned out a garage or basement and there was a ton of stuff on the curb. I scored a big wooden filing cabinet too.

It's large trash pickup week in our neighborhood, you should see our curb. It looks like we're moving out.

Today I wonder why semi entertaining threads gets closed and why people look forward to threads being locked. If you don't like a thread, don't open it~! Not exactly a lot of hot new topics around these parts

Today I decided that we're going to buy a ****ty old van when we move out to CA, put huge Retrogression logos on the sides (and a backward one on the hood like an ambulance) and turn it into a mobile bike shop/party bus.

I particularly dislike when the locking mod leaves their opinion as they lock it, quite petty, and not necessarily the case with the assumed thread.


This is a forum, a place to share opinions, as long as they're all the same I guess.

today i miss my morning bike commute. off to an interview for a counselor position at a super-max security prison mental health facility. it's only a lateral transfer, but the office i'm in now is self destructing due to incompetent supervisors.

after that i come home and start the teardown/rebuild on a used Surly 1x1 i picked up cheap.
