F this noise, I'm moving to LA, Chicago is the new Buffalo

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)

Winter is over but it's snowing.
I am ****ing out, chi is done.
I closed it out, I am picking
up the frame that Marcus has
been "re-spacing" since...
putting it in my Trans-Am
stealing my roommates cat
buy a case of Malort
dropping it through the t-top
into shotgun
cb handle
"drv2liv"
ps. when you ****ers realize Chicago is the new Buffalo, and you need a place to crash when submitting to LA Lust, pm me and you can crash in my yard, you'll be fine it never ****ing snows there

just cause there's a hill doesn't mean you have to climb it.

Nothing is ever the new anything else. What the **** do maps say, has Chicago been replaced by Buffalo? Is Buffalo now Cincinatti? Look at a color chart, pink is still pink and green is still green. I will destroy you.
