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)

Mad Jelly, trying to save up some dollars to get my leg started/arm finished but it's hard when life keeps happening.

Ehh, I can't get anything I can't cover. I have one leg left to complete my body suit. I don't want to risk my career by getting my throat. Plus my last girl had her throat done & I didn't like all the attention (mostly neg) that she got.

With that said, get it done and let me live vicariously through you.

Yeah, but I've been at my job 9 years, I'm spoiled by the money I make and I enjoy what I do so I don't want to risk it. Plus I want to quit and move to California so finding a new job scares me. Also, truthfully, I enjoy covering it up when I want.

I wasn't implying that you don't have a good job or get paid well, I was basically saying that I am a ***** and don't want to risk what I've got.

Ain't no shame in working for the man. Buy a bike with the proceeds and get a free karma reset

You guys might be the perfect people to ask this...I was telling my buddy at work that I want to get my kneecap done and he said I shouldn't bother because the skin regenerates so quickly there that I'd have to have it touched up constantly. How true is that?

I try to avoid video games because they become a huge timesuck for me and I become unmotivated to do anything else...but this game could lure me in. It's been at least two years since I picked up my xbox controller.

Today I realised that I have been unforgivably stupid. I bought a Focale Revolted wheelset for my Cinelli Mash only to discover that the 10 mm front axle won't fit in the fork dropout. I'll have to buy a new front wheel. Now, where do I find a webstore that sells single wheels? I guess most stores are unwilling to split up a wheelset and sell me only the front wheel.

That's exactly what i have done and added a throat jammer a few years ago. I got 3/4 through and never finished the shading since. I'll eventually finish it up.

dang y'all are gutsy. i'm all wishy-washy about just extending my half-sleeve down to my wrist for fear of it being harder to cover up. so many women's cardigans (my coverup clothing item of choice) are 3/4 sleeve and even the ones that aren't i'm always pushing up my sleeves. if my house sells this summer i'm definitely getting more tattoos soon but the decision is between extending the half-sleeve & going for a thigh piece.

i too have a cushy corporate-ish job that gives me a nice income. they wouldn't care about more tattoos, but what if i want to change jobs...

I got my boys names in script the full length of each of my forearms. I'm a professional that wears short sleeves or rolled up long sleeves. I don't care and neither do my colleagues.
I just added this too about 3 weeks ago

Sleeves are no big deal these days. My friends in the corporate world are covered in tattoos but all above the cuff which is crucial for them. Luckily for me, my electrical union doesn't care about hand and throat jammers!

I've only had my knee tattooed for about a year but its holding up fine and I haven't heard otherwise. If that's the logic then I assume that elbows would be the same? if so I have both of my elbows done with no problems.

FYI the knee hurts like a MOFO.

Thanks so much man, the breeder was actually going to put him down for having his front 2 legs bent, from birth defects. I'm so happy I took him he's become my best friend and the best dog I've ever had.

Got my elbow tattooed 13yrs ago and have pretty much had zero fallout.
Re: names- I've got my daughters name tattooed on the back of my neck in some gangster drop shadow script. Showed it to her last year for the first time (she's 6 now) and it blew her mind.....she had no idea about it since my hair covers it all the time.

Today I'm impatiently waiting for my new bike to arrive UPS. I've checked the tracking at least 3 times, in the hopes that somehow the arrival date will mysteriously change from Thursday to Monday.

No such luck...yet!
