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)

I love my bike

I LOVE MY FIXED GEAR BIKE.
i love riding my bike so much it hurts. there's nothing that makes me more happy then riding through traffic, trails and malls. i like to beat cars, not because i'm an ******* but because bikes are much more efficient in getting through traffic then cars. and! hell! riding my bike makes me feel so much better then driving cars. i like to go as fast as the wind. i like walking my bike up stairs. i like locking my bike up on the street, it makes me proud that i have something i need to lock up. when i ride my bike i am okay with everything. i don't drink because i can't ride my bike when i'm drunk, now can i? I LIKE EVERYTHING BUT MOST OF ALL I LIKE MY BIKE (AND LET IT BE BY THE REPLACEMENTS)

haven't you noticed how almost every cycling product has a bottle opener attached somewhere to it?

but come to LA, we'll teach you to hustle, drink and smoke on the same ride.

I shotgun a tall boy of Steel Reserve before every ride, even my ride to work, cause it's just more fun that way.

I assure you not. My skill with the bottle and familiarity with the bike is a credit to cyclists the world over.
