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)

Does Dennis even bother anymore?

I like that the second one uses Pokemon references.

That pink must be hard to accelerate with that kind of gearing ratio. Blow out the patella tendon just to slow it down.

I saw that and wonder if it was the TIP from here. But the submission is such an obvious troll, Suntour/Campy/Shimano drivetrain, carbon saddle with tin rails.

What the hell are you talking about???

I'm not going to research the BB/crank compatibility but you can mate mismatched components and they will work. Last I heard mongrel drivetains aren't illegal. She may have had a brain fart and written the wrong component in there as well. And then a typo in Ti rails... how does that make it trolling?

It's obviously TiP, what are the odds of 2 ppl using that name coincidentally?

TIP, being the fashion maven she was, would never have ridden a bike with a upturned threadless stem.

And Pidgeotto, Ash, Pewter City are all Pokemon references (helps having grandkids)

Dennis asks people to donate $5 with their submission to cover some costs of running the site. Hence the paypal.

Everybody promises PayPal, like it will somehow magically ensure they're pic gets posted. I'd venture to say you could email him a picture of a turd, he'd post it without noticing.
