your subie and your fixed gear

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)

Because it's BFSSFG???

I have both a "subie" and a "fixie" (not sure what term I hate more) but no real current pics to post up. Perhaps I'll do that tomorrow.

Great show, I'm surprised with the incredible success of WoW that MMORPG based shows aren't more popular.

Next time you try this however, take the reference out of the file name.

The growing trend of performance car owners and fixed gears is really funny... 100 years of technology overlapping in two very different interests.

My brother works in a shop back home that tweaks the **** out of cars. The best in the South East hands down. I feel dirty going into his shop, even though it's spotless. mmmm the smell of 9 mpg...

prolly- where's your brother's shop? I have a good friend from elementary school (though I haven't talked to him in quite a while) who runs a dyno shop in Birmingham AL.... he doesn't have a brother though, only a sister.
