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)

Stupid plague doctor picture doesn't work anymore.

I'm going as a clown.

Seriously, what's creepier than a clown?

thank you and goodnight.

EDIT: oh yeah i forgot to say..... it didn't work.

Thanks for the knowledge.
Knowing that now makes the costume even more scary,.....infact, I will have nightmares later tonight.

Now, I totally back this costume but I personally wouldn't want to scare girls away from me.

I'd like to find a way to get an Eddie mask and rig a superflash for the eye.

I'm sure they sell a mask like that somewhere.


EDIT: I forgot it was both eyes, and I kinda need to see, so there goes that idea.

I hope you are going to a party with only architects, planners and urban designers. If I was at that party I would appreciate it. I would be dressed as Olmsted.
