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)

Is that some sort of weird camera angle, or is that the most out of true rear wheel ever?

I hate when camera angles distort perception. It happens some times though.

that wheel was the result of me sprinting up a hill, drunk, in the dark, racing a buddy, hitting a large pothole. i immediately lost 50% of my speed...and didn't make it to the top first. luckily my front wheel made it over ok.

two spokes had zero tension after that hit, lol.

Shoulda been on the kick bike, because then you could foot plant and jump over the pot hole, protecting your spinergy from the danger!

Get that trued up and ride it some more.

I support all goldenskeletons races. I had such a good time at Metal Race.

And then my spoke card flew out while racing in St. Petersburg.

Bye bye sweet devil spoke card.

What's really wrong with his bike though, other than having the color-scheme of a happy-meal toy? (which is kinda cool, really)

If he vanished the fenders and put blue grips on, it might be slightly less obnoxious.

I have no problem with his bike though...other than the pedals and ineffectiveness of having just a rear brake.

Oh, and the stupidity of not including a shot of the full bike ticks me off. That's a common FGG trait more bothersome than any jackass bike itself, which is usually pretty entertaining.
