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)

the fact that you are watching a glee sneak peek scares me.

Who cares? Worrying about what others are doing sounds like hipsterism to me.

It should be noted that you should skip to 20 seconds, and stay at 20 seconds. I watched the whole thing. Now I feel bad.

I got an infraction not too long ago for that.

Forget censoring pictures. It's just too much work.

BMX survived (Nicole Kidman in) "BMX Bandits"

Skateboarding survived "Gleaming the Cube"

Fixed gear will survive "Premium Rush", "Glee" and any other media bandwagon.

i shall eagerly await the great Ebay sell-off of coolness. i still have room in the basement...

Totally missed it the first time I hit the 20 second mark. Someone was paying (way too much) attention.

Also, leftover Thai red curry with duck.

Never heard of the show, since I no longer watch television.
And I thought the reality shows were bad.

I ate Cheba Hut for the first time. Sandwiches that don't taste like **** and are named after weed strains was a treat. The fact that they were on sale doesn't hurt either.
