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 Jackass Thread lives! ►PLEASE READ 1ST POST◄

OK, this time around, there are going to be some expectations and standards.

1) Keep it fun
2) Do NOT be unnecessarily harsh in your criticisms, that's not edgy or cool, it's being a jerk.
3) Keep it in the guidelines

4) DO NOT POST OTHER MEMBER'S BIKES. WE ARE SERIOUS ABOUT THIS.
If anytime after the fact we learn that a bike posted is owned by a fellow forum member, there will be consequences. There is ZERO tolerance.


If these standards can't be met, I'll close this topic down for a while and let y'all think about it.



Meantime, here's something weird to start it off.

Not really jackass, but to be honest, most of the bikes posted in jackass threads, aren't:

That bike would be a blast if you could get the seat height right and have multiple gears.

I hear you. Stuff made out of pieces of wood fastened together with nails or screws never holds up.

Dangerous things are often very fun. Fun things are often very dangerous.

I'd have a blast on that thing.

What's the point of having a new thread if people are going to repost bikes from the old one? Or is that part of the "jackass" theme?
