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)

lollersk8!

I mean I was just pointing it out. If you can avoid it, why not?

Yeah, Kiss is just special I guess. I don't think the Torah approves of half of their backstage antics either.

It's just a rune, guys. Unless you were in a concentration camp or you are a nazi fetishist you should just relax.

It's the letter 'S'

Oh, a rune. Of course.

I just think there are plenty of other ways they could have made that logo look if their overpaid marketeers pulled their heads out of their rears. Especially the black and white one. Eepp...

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