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?

that capo is jackass? the fork looks messy in that close up, but seriously. I don't think i get it anymore.

I see hed3's on leaders all the time, that seems a much greater travesty than a hed3 on a capo...

Jesus fuking christ you guys are such misguided little snobs; Manuel Prado is one of the top pro-mountain bikers in the US. And in case you don't know, many pros have their names on their bikes. Urgh.

What the **** are you talking about? How would I know who this guy is? Do I give a **** who this guy is? Did I say anything bad about him? His bike is alright, nothing bad, nothing amazing. Parts are a bit wonky but thats his choice. So I guess I am misguided for saying that he doesnt really belong here. I do not really know why you quoted my other post.

Hard to believe that is is bike considering he rides for specialized.

Relax kid. There is no need to freak out on people who have their name on their bike in a fit of self-righteous snobby outrage. Why would you call someone a ****** for having their name on their bike?

I said it was tacky. Did you even read my post.

edit- when i said ****** i was referring to what the op said about the guy not what I thought about him. Also I do not see why you are telling me to relax when you called me a self righteous snob, indirectly.

Yep, I did. It's also the norm on most teams, you know the folks who ride for a living.

So why do you think putting your name on your bike so you can actually find it amongst all the other team bikes is tacky?

No, I directly called you a self-righteous snob.

I am sure this is what this guy is thinking exactly. HMMMMM I WONDER HOW I CAN FIND MY BRIGHT RED CAPO WITH A HED 3 ON IT. HMMMM THERE ARE SO MANY HERE. O LOLOLOLOL THERE IT IS I KNOW THIS CAUSE IT HAS MY NAME ON IT. WAIT IS THIS MY CAR? HOLD ON LET ME CHECK IF IT HAS MY NAME ON IT? O THUR IT IS.

People order keiren bikes with their name on it all the time. To some they love the idea, to others its in poor taste. Taste is subjective, you do not have to agree with it. Honestly I do not care if you put your name on your bike. I do not care if you put a sub 9 disk on a kilo tt. Does this guy care what I think about is bike? I doubt it. This is my opinion. I really do not know why you are making a big deal about what I said, when I feel that i was not overly critical.

Like is said before I doubt this is the so called world famous mountain bikers bike anyways.

Why would even feel the need to make snarky comments about someone's bike in the first place? If they like it is all that matters.

From the velospace page, my little snob.

My track bike raced at Hellyer Park Velodrome
https://velospace.org/node/18421

Have you actually been to a bike race before?

Ill go ahead and quote this for you, since apparently you did not do well in reading comprehension in elementary school.

Are you saying you were wrong for attacking me? That you over reacted maybe? Or even you should have said something to the op? and not some one defending the bike? And that you did not really read any of my post? I'll take it as that and stop posting about this. I will also go ahead and admit my post were a bit on over the top. I may have also over reacted.
