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)

i only meant like.. its setup just as well as your front, full knowing rear is only 30% stopping power of the front.
no harm meant. <3

Damn...I don't remember. Maybe the Kilo thread? People were ragging on your brake and I recall someone saying "maybe it's an Asian thing" and it getting some laughs. There wasn't a big discussion about it or anything. At any rate, your new bike is killer. Good job!

I saw this bike at the library and I tried taking a picture with my phone but apparently it didn't save... so I used MS paint to show you guys this ridiculous bike.

Lets try this again. Ignore the odd proportions of the bike, my MS paint skills are weak at best and this took about 5 minutes.

Scrod your homage is classic, and IMHO that girl is not to my tastes at all.

Those are brain tumors. He doesnt have long to live that's why he went cheap for a republic bike lol. Hopefully the bike will outlast his last days.

That dude sucks. He could be the nicest guy in the world and ice cold beer magically flows from his fingertips, I don't care. I hate him.

BTW, that bike is just fine. I'd add fenders, but that's just because I kinda ride my bikes, not just look at them. It's a novel concept.

It's a Republic. Maybe once it falls apart he can take pieces of the bike and implant them in his stupid ass.

OOOOOH snark snark snark! My bike has no fenders, I put in 60 km today, 80 the day before, 30 the day before that, 60 the day before that, 80 the day before that and so on. I ride everyday and just about everywhere I go. But yeah, I guess I just keep the bike around for show. Dick.

They usually use natural materials when doing implants. Coral is a big one. A lot of guys use solid blocks of PTFE as well and just carve the shape out of it.
