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)

Oops.

EDIT: OK OK, sorry about that. I'm not used to the environment around here, honestly didn't mean any disrespect.

I think riding a quintuple century on a track bike is the most amazing thing you could ever do on a bike, trackstands are usefull when actually transitioning between two sets of moving, skids ruin your tires, bikes ruin your balls, saddles chafe your ass, short distance rides make you weak, long distance rides make you obsessed, I hate everything you stand for (as long as it does or does not fall in line with what I stand for), and the fonz wasn't a dirty WOP in real life, he just played one on tv. Sick a duck, lick some ass, smoke some crack, and go watch some tv, its better for you than exercise ever could be.

edit: insert juvi-kyle emoticon here.
