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)

Older Cherokees are rad and half the people who whine about the environment smoke cigarettes and eat food laced with chemicals.

There's pro's and con's to every application of science. There are people who will not die of diseases or starvation because of GMOs, but also ecological damage.

Keep your bikes out of my politics.

Today I'm finally caught up at work and will be installing the new headset on the redline. Tomorrow will be singlespeed singletrack shenanigans. Very excited.

My first car was a '95 Cherokee. Loved that thing (hated the gas mileage tho.) Her name was Orca because there was a belt that would squeal like a killer whale any time the A/C was on. The steering wheel would shimmy violently if you hit 85, which was as high as the speedometer went anyway.

Wasn't 4wd though, not sure what the deal is with even MAKING Cherokees w/o 4wd. I bought it in Texas where it didn't matter, then moved to Chicago where the bad city mileage, largeish size, and no 4wd didn't make no sense. Sold it for cash (like literally a wad of bills) to my apt building maintenance man.

Thats when I got my Mazda3 which I also lurv.



Also the "but other things people do are bad for the environment" is a pretty specious argument. And, while electricity to power electric cars may (or may not) come from fossil fuels, it's easier to control pollution at the source than in millions of individual combustion engines on the road in varying states of repair and modern technology. This is not to say there aren't issues with batteries and such; it's just stupid to throw out those issues as if they are equivalent without doing the engineering/physics/math/climate science.

Yeah for black steel wheels and AT tires.

Here's mine:




My 94 truck gets about 40 miles a month on it. My brother's 13 Lexus 350 gets about 1200/month. Which is the most enviro friendly??

Good point ! It's not the mileage that you vehicle gets, but the total gallons of fuel burned that matters the most. I used to put 12K miles / year on my 2004 F150 5.6L V8 truck, but now it will might see 200 miles / year at most, since I bought a new car that averages about 40 mpg. Also, now that I'm retired, I drive less than 3K miles / year total, and use my bike a lot more for transportation.

Stop talking about bikes, dude. We're discussing gas mileage, global warming, genetically modified chicken and widespread hypocrisy here!
