The Photo Thread of You Riding Your Bike aka Action Jackson

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)

my legs do look like drumsticks. i blame lack of photoshop. that's me and the "king of skitch", felipe. he has a movie in the bff this year. so did i, but i guess my movie had to many nyc inside jokes to make the rounds at other cities.

also, why is chombo being so modest. i have an amazing picture of him. he also has a movie at the bff this year. look at all that pretty hair
