Also, now there are two writing contests y'all should be scribbling down words for:
The hub's a fixed/freewheel flipflop. So I'm riding fixie for the first time in my life. I can kind of see what the big deals all about, there's definitely a unique feel to it. All the same, once I get a brake installed, I'll probably switch back over to the freewheel.---I don't think anyone's ever really died from smoking. --ni
There's a belt driven singlespeed at the disturbingly tempting bikeshop that's just opened next to my work (which is well out of order, because my work's too far out from the city centre to have proper shops).
Please tell me it's OK to be a(n) HuSite even if you ride an off-the-rack Fuji mountain bike with wheels that weight >5 tonnes each.
Fixie. My knees hurt already, just looking at it. (On the other hand, as noted above, I'm older than Christ. So it's not unexpected that my knees hurt just looking at it.)She has effectively checked out. She's an un-person of her own making. So it falls to me.--ad hoc (in the hole)

(I still owe hulver a $20 in the post.)
If you back for $7 you get a copy of the first issue. The cover price of the first issue is going to be $7. You're actually saving the shipping cost.
As for a subscription, if you back for $27 you're getting a one year subscription ($20) plus a second copy of the first issue ($7).
It's great because it allows us to have our preorders essentially on escrow. If the magazine doesn't launch for some reason, no money changes hands.
We're not doing non-Kickstarter preorders though. So if you really don't want to use the Kickstarter system, you'll have to just wait until we go to press and you can buy a subscription directly then.---I don't think anyone's ever really died from smoking. --ni
