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 hit a squirrel on my bike once. It ran across the street when I spinning pretty good. Ran under my front tire, it bumped me up a bit, but i kept going. The squirrel did too. So all is well.

I hit a squirrel once as well, ended in my friend going and having to kill it because I didn't want to. I've also hit a cat, but cats should be smart enough not to run in front of bikes...

This thread is ridiculous.

Someone is setting hipster traps in New York. A bike chain is bait, so topical.

Ha, that's kind of funny.

I really dislike the term hipster, though, and I can barely bring myself to say the word term aloud. People have commonly told me that I'm a hipster just because I have a few bikes and they happen to be my main mode of transportation, and it infuriates me.

I had a squirrel try to cross in front of me -- he hit my front wheel and was thrown onto my (jeans-wearing) leg where he held on for a second, then dove through the frame to continue in the direction he had been going.

Second such encounter was a pair of squirrels gettin' jiggy several feet off the path, but they panicked as I went by. The female made it past in front of me, the male, not so lucky, didn't survive.

A couple of years ago I was riding home from from work late at night, had forgotten my lights, and hit a possum. I fell and the possum shook itself off and hissed at me. Possum: stronger than slow moving bike.
