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)

Oof, I hope you learn from your mistakes; formula rings are so bad they literally get chunks taken out of them by spanners during the tightening process...

That's on the side; she does corporate accounting.

She's also a vampire; have you ever seen twilight? The wicked wretch made me cold blooded.

yeah I noticed that when I was taking it off. I'd say I've taken this one off and on only like 2 times and the notches in it had already started to get messed up. should have taken that as a hint as to how the threading was. Today I feel like a dingus

Nah no need to be, it happens to all of us. A formula rear is bombproof once you get it properly set up with a DA lockring.

Big applause for you!

That In Colours album is pretty damn good. Haven't heard the new on in its entirety but I really liked a couple of cuts they played on the one-hour Colbert Report extravaganza. Might have to pick it up next week. Wish they'd do the In Colours online pricing scheme again

I rode it around for a few minutes and it's kinda scary. LOL

I tried to skid for ****s and giggles and definitely almost ate it. I also can't trackstand for the life of me. Man this sucks. I'm at negative street cred.
