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)

Does the chain still turn after you rattle-canned the whole thing, or did you at least disassemble it first?

Yeah, it was.
"Hey, let's see your *****ty bikes!" followed by "Oh man, you suck because your bike is so *****ty" is ********.

LOL!

I love my front-brake-only "frankentownie"

This hideous 1 X 9 is now wearing a tacky set of plastic fenders which only makes it MORE ugly to those interested only in aesthetics.

Truth be known, this monstrosity rides like a friggin' dream.

Lovin' my ugly bike.
