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 didn't name my bike. I'm not a weirdo.

EDIT! Well, I am a weirdo. Just not about that.

One of the best things I ever read on the forums: "You shouldn't anthropomorphize bikes, they don't like it when you do that."

I like your Schwinnebago. (one of the rare bike names I can endorse.) I'm on board with naming freak bike type things if they're unique enough, but that's about it. I don't name machines, and they don't have feelings.
