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)

Freak bikes aren't really "jackass" considering they're meant to be wacky. I know a bunch of guys from back in MA that would constantly be trying to outdo each other by making the craziest bikes possible.

Cottered cranks, just a silly piece of technology. However, if I was a steampunk enthusiast I would want that bike mounted to a wall in my room, it oozes mechanical cool with that look.

If you say it that way, jackass would be a compliment to them then.
So wacky that it's jackass.

Ha! There was a guy around here for a few years who looked like Napoleon Dynamite and rode a tenspeed townie with twenty or thirty plastic dinosaurs glued to the handlebars, back rack and front basket.

Bark is lighter and more aerodynamic than carbon fiber. Just ask trees.

I found the worst frame ever on eBay.



The horror. Then I looked up the company. They have a brand. I **** you not, "Street Cred."



Well, they had a brand. "Designed in Philadelphia, PA at a place called Frankenstein Bike Worx. I don't think they're in business anymore."

I can't imagine why. Was it the literally-Hitler fixies? Oh, the owner/designer was an unhinged *******.

Anyways I learned a fun story tonight, sorry if it's only news to me.

Old hat, used to see them in Philly all the time. They are just as ugly in person, but they're not terrible to ride.
