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)

New to the forums - saying hey

Just wanted to introduce myself. Been riding for quite a while, and I love forums, but I have never been on a bike forum! Anyways, I'm in St. Petersburg and love to ride. Here is my bike:

Hello DDabs,

Welcome to bikeforums!

Feel free to reply to any existing threads, and generally participate in the forums. SS/FG (single speed/fixed gear) sub-forum can be a tough crowd, but they'll warm up eventually .

The answers to common questions are as follows:

Welcome! Hope you can pick up some good advice, new knowledge, or at least a chuckle or two during your stay. Pro tip: Make sure to read the sticky'd threads so you understand the rules/general guidelines so you don't embarrass yourself. (I learned this the hard way). Also, the search feature will be your best friend - always check if your question has already been answered, otherwise you'll get a bunch of smartass responses.

Here is a useful list of what I call "people not to **** with" as they generally know more than you and are quite helpful after you've been sufficiently burned:
Scrod
TejanoTrackie
bandera
TimothyH
I learned the hard way lol
