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?

What did you break in '08?

Was a pretty good year. Nothing major

2 forks, (broke fork end on one and bent the other).
1 Rim + 1 spoke (trials bike, technically both a fixed gear (fixed hub) and ss (freewheel on crank)).
1 Chainring (remember to check your stack bolts more than once a season).

Two stripped hubs (related incident), nitto olympiade bars, some spokes, and a so far non-fatal top tube dent.

A rim, and scraped up a good leather jacket and shattered the front screen on my cell phone during a nasty 20 mph wreck.
