The Photo Thread of You Riding Your Bike aka Action Jackson

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'm the one that eats. One of the only pictures of my Bridgestone, actually.

That pink/blue IRO sees a lot of track time at Hellyer. She's a mod on SFFixed.

My GF wanted to try shooting some action shots. Just a generic sprint outside my house.

Sick! I haven't been on Vortex in years. I used to be OBSESSED with Volkswagen, but my taste has since changed to fancy old BMW's. Still love a good VW though.

I swear I'm not a chupacabra! Funny that my username is Thunder Thighs, however, so thanks for the compliments!

Here's me racing at the velodrome in San Jose, CA:


On the Baby Whip:

Also, I used to race the Baby Whip until I acquired a separate race bike. It's been through many incarnations - this is how it looks nowadays. It 'tis one of the bikes you love or hate! And it's a powdercoated IRO and I had the Velocity rims done as well (although I was hit by a motorcycle, so the front rim was damaged and is just a regular Deep-V that already came in pink).
