Track Bikes have become synonymous with Roller Derby on Myspace

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)

Track Bikes have become synonymous with Roller Derby on Myspace

I can't seem to escape the overwhelming numbers of stupid Roller Girls & Track Bike constitutiencies on Myspace.

If you're not with me here, Myspace is now comprised of two camps.

1) Overweight, pushy broads posing w/ their roller skates and/or posses of roller girls. Usually they're knocking someone down or showing off a bruise or advertising their next match slash eating contest.

2) Art f*gs striking a post with their track bikes. Or just pure vanity shots of their bikes they just bought on eBay. Sometimes they're doing track stands to show they can still retain balancing skills they learned as a toddler. Or they have their bikes chained up high on some fence for some dumb reason despite the fact there's a perfectly good bike rack just a few feet away.

thats why I dropped my account, actually those aren't the reasons, I just think it's dumb. it was fun when it was just people posting rediculous photoshopped pictures in each others comments.... honestly velospace is more fun.

I know, raygunner. It's like posing it front of a "The Warriors" mural. Mywaste is such a culture crime.

Oh, and way to use the homophobic adjectival references! I was hoping the cop training wouldn't go to waste!

When you hit Coney Island you gotta represent with the Warriors! Sure, I can throw up the crown & yell "King Love" but then I'd be in hot water.

Dude, why do you have a picture of a wheel.

But I love Myspace! Love it! Because it is great link between people of all walks of life & more importantly, cute girls. It's so entertaining & fulfilling at the same time. I meet new friends, I stay in touch with old ones. And most importantly, I have fun. It's like the online version going to the mall, hanging out w/ friends & people watching.

But when people think they're some kind celebutant because they can ride a bike or skate then I think it gets a bit cheesy like Dr. Angus.

If your bike is the most important thing if your life that's great. It's a beautiful thing! But don't you have any pics of friends, family, a place you visited or cute girls?

You feel me, 165?

PS - Like those students of you aren't gonna find you on Myspace! Haha!

You know I've had a myspace since beta, and its a royal waste of time.

I dont think I've ever used it for anything more than just sending emails to people that I really dont know their emails. Old friends. New friends.

All myspace is, is just a glorified way to email people.

Social networking sites are the worst. The have almost no meaningful content--less than blogs, and certainly less than BFSSFG, which is pretty ****ing bad. : P
