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)

like, totally rad.

BTW, celeste is reserved for a particular italian marque. it's a horrible color, and you can only pull it off if you've been doing it for 100 years or so.
Are you saying that ugly bikes should only be ridden in conurbations? Maybe he lives in a big city and just likes to ride his bike out to the 'burbs and lean it against garage doors to snap pictures of it? Ugly bikes ridden by bozos are ugly bikes no matter where the rider lives.

There is a difference of about a foot in height between his saddle and the flats of his bars. Holy ****, maybe it's just me but that looks uncomfortable.
Perhaps its been said many times before, but doesn't everyone agree that all these guys saying "PayPal on the way" are never intending to pay?

We're not elitist. We just know that we're better than everyone else.

but in seriousness. If people cant see it's all in good fun then that's too bad. We rag on each other's bikes more than we do FGG's

This thread has gotten nasty at times but most of the time it's fun and light hearted. We've all been guilty of pulling some jackass bike **** at one time or another, and this is the thread where we laff about it.

The way I see, people post their bikes to get a reaction. I see no wrong-doing when people rag on something being shown off. Some people love the negative publicity, as they believe it to be better to ride something deemed as the most hideous contraption on wheels as opposed to not being noticed at all.

I'm sure I've repeated this a dozen times in this and various threads, but do people really post pictures of their bikes on the internet and NOT expect criticism? Did they bother to read the FGG Forum before they posted their bike, because it's way more brutal there then it is here.

my favorite CL bike in a while

'Surly flip/flop rear hub. 32 hole laced to 16 spoke wheel (still very strong)"

Yeah. It should be fine for brakeless riding in Seattle. No problem.

Hey, isn't that what fixed riding is all about? The thrill of defying death. No brakes and a rear wheel that is just begging to fail as you bomb a hill. Oh man, what an adrenaline rush.

I sometimes like to ride with a ferret in my pants while eating blowfish sushi just to up the ante.

If you haven't set your hair on fire during that whole deal, you might as well trade in your pants for a tasteful sun dress.

Actually that's probably more dangerous. You've got balls, son, brass balls.

A friend of mine pledged to try to build one of those, no matter how long it takes him. I just can't wait for the day when he takes it for a test ride and ends up pulling a hamster when he brakes too hard.
