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)

what the hell is hardpact? i see the forums haven't gotten any better...

"bling bling"? the friggin frameset is a piece of ****. the geometry was ****ed up when i bought it dirt cheap off of chucks. the seat tube is cracked and cannot be welded unless i can find a machinist that can weld at two bizarre wavelengths at the same time and compensate for the magnesium in the alloy. the aerospoke i got practically for free for a magazine review. that was 2 years ago and it's still true. heavy and slow at the start and flops like hell with TT bars when the syracuse wind hits hard, but it is still true. as for the rest of the stuff, it's all your average ****.

i am not interested in having a coolness competition, i am just interested in meeting fixed riders in syracuse. i have been here for 6 yrs, im 24, i might leave this fall, and i have been riding fixed for 3yrs. i am a smoker, so it's not like i'm even that fast.

peapody doesn't want to ride because he/she has more posts about his/her earing acessories than they do about bicycles.
