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?

Ahh, fair enough. Tight jeans have a time and place. And that time and place is never on guys, and always on girls.

Granted, you do look like a jackass if you have a rolled up pantleg all day even when you're not on the bike.
its not the fact it was rolled up while riding, i mean i do that, but he left it rolled up as he was cruising around the mall. he had to be there for two hours because i left then came back to get my lil bro and saw him again at starbucks

Sometimes I just forget I got them up. Or I don't feel like rolling them up and then rolling them back down like 30 minutes later.

pretty sad that a conversation on rolled up pant legs can go on this long.

Wait a second...

The whole "argument" about what makes something jackass is if it prioritizes form over function, and now people who look goofy (form) with a pant leg caught up for the practical purpose of not getting it snagged in their chain (function) are also jackass? Some of you guys are hilarious...


I was at the mall once, and this guy had gel tape on his bars, even though cork tape is soooo much better. What a ****ing jackass, amirite guys?
