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)

Groceries are why I have this:

EDIT:
BTW: that is not me with the silly truck. It's the guy I sold it to. When I got the new wheels, it no longer fit in my studio apartment and I had to sell it off.

Eh. It hasn't failed me yet. Just crank on the bolt HARD. If(when) it does fail, It'll be a hilarious mess of broken eggs and spilled red wine!

clearly these bikes are rockin' McDonald's Playland color scheme:



I hear SLC kids are hosting hella rad barspin comps in McD's parking lots after hours...really it's a pretty underground scene so keep it on the DL, the winners get cool schwag like Ourys colored like Shamrock Shakes. There's this guy Grimace who's like 320 but can trackstand for 45 mins if he totes scarfs some McNuggets first.

yes, i am kidding you.

unsarcastically, i find it hard to believe some kids (that is if they are "kids") have the money from their part time, minimum wage job to afford cinelli's and aerospokes. not to mention the car payments on that civic!

It was established earlier that the bikes in question belong to some folks who were on a road trip, so we have no idea their age or occupation.

point is, it's called make some money and then can spend some. i'd think any american would be familiar with that concept, but maybe in ohio you just work and then you don't get to buy anything with your money.
