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)

Yes, and the swastika was around long before the NDSP. Doesn't mean you still shouldn't go around throwin' it up/on things.

I dont think gran compe's marketers are rolling around in pools of gold and yen.

They are a Japanese product. Do think Japan has a good sense of outside culture or any clue of the "SS" somewhat relating to Nazis?

protip: japan == ethnocentrism to the max

Japan was part of the Axis during WWII...

besides I doubt any Gestapo Schutzstaffel would be able to kidnap anyone if their victims could see them rolling up on their hot pink and lime green wheeled bikes...

That would have made the war so much easier!

I wonder if the muscle grouping required for goose-stepping for long periods of time is similar to those required for fix skidzzz

no...but goose-stepping does help stretch your quads after riding a century of uphill sprints with a 48x15....

I remember Deathare posting that these kinda sucked in some other thread. Something about them not being durable as far as colored tires go.

Yeah, they're tires. Big deal. I didn't get a hard-on. Stop lurking the interwebs and go ride.

What tubing did you get? Uno, Zero, or LTZ? And what geometry did you spec it to?

I'm sure you know the swastika has origins and meanings different than strictly Nazi Germany...

AND PLEASE DON'T QUOTE WITH PICTURES. THANKS.
