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)

Easy, easy forum first years. Doesn't one of you need to attend to your stirring track fork end debate and clear up any ambiguities with some helpful links?

I just want to know if you actually knew definition #6 or if you are simply so intellectually eager that you ran yourself over to dictionary.com to find that out.

"Oh honey, you smell so lovely tonight! What is that flavor you are wearing?"

Archaic, connoting that it is generally out of use, meaning most people don't refer to something their nose tells them as a flavor.

It may be an older practice, but we used to ***** slap forum neophytes for acting like this, but just sayin'

Not digging the risers, but pretty cool nonetheless.

My Dawes? Now that I look at it in the picture it does look like a Yankee candle, but in actuality it is an empty jar of trail mix. OM NOM NOM

I actually knew the definition, just needed a source to back it up.

I know a word that used to mean "bundle of sticks" which I generally refrain from using because I'm aware of the fact that I'm not living in the 16th Century.

Just sayin'.

That usage went out of fashion over 300 years ago. Are you really that surprised?

I have heard "flavor" used rather often when referring to the scent of a candle. Nowhere else though.

I'm in the process of removing the cable guides and cleaning out and repainting rust spots. I'm in love with it and I put on additions and clean it up as I need to. Nothing special about it. I didn't jock out with top of the line brands (don't have the funds), but it gets me through the tundra and the potholes here in glamorous Buffalo, NY. Insult my piecemeal, hand-to-mouth conversion. I'll probably look to upgrade my frame in late winter, no use in going fancy with this winter.

I guess with only one hood it doesn't matter how poorly it's positioned?
Seems like a cool bike, I just love some well set up hoods on road drops, and your brake only looks usable if you're deep into the drop.
