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 "fixed" my PS3.

I thought it was damaged in shipping during my last move. It worked fine right before and started acting up the first time I used it after the move. It would make zapping noises and the video signal would cut out for a few seconds at a time. After 6 months of being without it I tried to see what's up. I came to find out that if I turned off 1080p and just used 1080i it works fine.

Not sure if I should be happy that it's fixed or upset that I didn't try this 6 months ago.



I'll just be happy that it's fixed

If it was a matte black one in the same size/ condition I would've done it.

Riding home from a friend's house I heard/felt a bunch of clicking from the crank area. Pulled over, every chainring bolt was loose to the point of almost being gone. Scary.

My friend(on a Draft Lite) and I were riding and found him having the exact same issue. It was alarming.

I don't think a lot of people even know what a chainring bolt spanner is, let alone use one.

That little thing is the best $6(if that) tool I've ever bought. I think one time spent trying to hold the backs of chainring bolts with a flat head and skinning my knuckles 12 times was enough to say "there has to be a ****ing tool to do this job".

I hate using that stupid tool.

Now that I started using knurled Sugino bolts, I'm never going back.

I'm not saying it's my favorite tool, but it sure as hell beats using the end of a screwdriver.

Today I am wincing from the latest tattoo session. Thought this was gonna be the last one, but my arm swelled up so much my artist called it quits a bit early. Last session (for reals this time) on June 16. Also planning on getting a little Tiny Fix tattoo with my fellow Tiny Fix Chicks real soon.

Made me feel like a wuss for being tired after my 35 miles yesterday morning.
Oh cool! Here's a higher-res pic, although still not great: https://i36.photobucket.com/albums/e2...0/assemble.jpg

Today, my boss brought in his old Trek 1000 and I want it. Bad. I don't even know why. Hopefully I can get him to sell it to me.

It looks like this but with unraveling white bar tape and a white concor supercorsa:
