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)

dents :(

today I got home after going to the mall and apparently my dad knocked over my bike which had been leaning _VERY SOLIDLY I MAY ADD_ against a wall. Now there are two medium sized dents in the tt. I needless to say flipped out and ended up being told to apologize and "it wouldn't have happened if you had a kickstand"
He dents up my frame and I get scolded to get a ****ing kickstand. sweet raptor jesus that is ****ed up
just venting.

This is why the the auto industry invented bondo....and the cycling industry invented stickers. Seriously though....unless there is a severe crease in it, I would not worry much about it.

Awesome, dude I think your dad need to apologize to you! Tell him about the Magna Carta and how the king has to follow the rules of the house too and if it was his bike he'd kick your ass. Then make him buy you a custom top tube pad from BiCi concepts. If he doesn't comply kick his ass, steal is CC, and **** on his car! Yes poop on his car!

Yeah, jeffey. This wouldn't have happened if you'd have moved out of your parents' house like most 30 year olds.







Just kidding, man.

Dents give you street cred. Tell people it happened during an alleycat.

No, you'd just have dents in the chainstays instead of the top tube.
