Which came first, the beard or the singlespeed?
Got the SS, always grow a beard when I’m on holiday. Whether this is enlightment or laziness, I don’t know. People keep saying it suits me, and I should keep it, but I’m not sure if it’s full enough to be tidied enough for the office. I guess final step is to get rid of the office job…Posted 4 years agoglobaltiMember
Ugh. I had a beard for two periods of my life and decided beards were too itchy, too dirty and gave me too many spots.
Funny thing was the first time I travelled to Pakistan after shaving off my beard and my passport picture was of me bearded. This caused consternation amongst the immigration officials who started, stared again and then hooted with laughter! “What happened to your BEARD sir?”Posted 4 years agojulianwilsonMember
Beard comes and goes, probably 40% of the last 12 years has been bearded. However first appearance of beard predates singlespeed bike by about 6 years.
In fact for a lot of that bearded time I thought singlepeeds were for making places with unchallenging hills more interesting, and that you couldn’t ride one (eand enjoy yourself!) on Dartmoor. Oh, that’s right you can and its great. 😀Posted 4 years agopsychleMember
Just wondering like… In my case, it was the beard, then I discovered SS and it’s strange allure… is there a correlation I wonders (half jokingly)? So, tell us, which came first for you, the beard or the SS?
Would be interested to hear from travelers halfway along the path to true happiness; however, remain silent those of the unenlightened who have not eschewed both the devil gears and the accursed razor, unwashed pagan heathens the lot of you! 😀Posted 4 years agoOCBMember
Beard. I’ve had one since I’ve been able to grow one.
My first SS was some years ago now too, others have since arrived – all are steel, and fully rigid of course (one is even a drop-bar’d 29er). 😯
Hmm, whist traveling down this back country lane, I’ve ridden in sandals for years too.Posted 4 years ago
