    Video: "1 on it" - The Singlespeeder's Anthem

    I wanted to share the world premiere music video of "1 on it" with all my fellow singlespeed brothers and sisters. It's based on the 90's hip hop hit "I got 5 on it" by Luniz.

    <iframe width="560" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/7ez-TLSpbZc" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    Video was masterfully shot and edited by Theo Dilworth of Allout Productions (who does freeride/DH movies and also shoots a lot of MTBR footage) a few weekends ago in San Francisco during the Singlespeed Cyclocross World Championships.

    Please share this video with anyone you know who rocks a singlespeed with pride!

    I got 1 on it.

    Dan is a devout fan of 90's hip hop, so he hooked us up with some serious chainring bling for the shoot. Hopefully none of those were customer rings that were backordered!

    Lyrics

    Here are the lyrics. Took me a long time (5 or 6 hours) to write them because I kept the rhymes, pentameter and flow as true to the original song as possible. If you listen to both songs, they flow almost exactly the same. Enjoy!


    Player, give me some gears an I might just ride
    But Iím the type that likes to dish out pain an roll
    Like Crimson Tide
    I steal koozies spit loogies when I ride on it
    Got one speed on it and thatís just enuff on it
    Go get the S the I-n-g-l-e
    Fifty-two twenty-three
    Rolliní up East Zayante
    So all you wack derailleurs suck my Ding Dong
    Iím gone, whips with gears Live Wrong
    Itís on, wrap my legs around my steel pony
    An when it comes to catch a geared phony
    My quads kick in like Tony
    No, me ainít no Romi to begin with,
    Itís too many gears to be poppiní when Iím shiftiní
    Unless you pull out the chain whip
    One ****iní gear on the rear before I clip
    Cos I gots dem straight up vacuum lungs
    An if you try to drop me
    Iíll holla ďdum-de-dum-dumĒ
    I ride to school with a cog on my earlobe
    Avoidiní all the lame fixies, pixies and EMOs
    I be rolliní Ďcross the land like where the end at
    Gimme ein gang
    You look long, I pass yo ass, mack.
    Suck on my wake like a rowboat, Iím furious
    My pace will make a roadie dope delirious like Vino
    I got more groupies than BSNYC
    Cos fixies nag me
    When I wear my baggies

    I got one on it
    Itís the only one I need
    I got one on it
    ĎCause I ride a single speed
    I got one on it
    Lose the gears and not look back
    I got one on it
    Shifting is so very wack

    I take my single to a race
    Whenever I can
    It ainít no crutch
    Iím so amped up
    After I hit some contraband
    This time I roll n be a lap up
    Iím passiní yo
    So get yo ass up out my path, bra
    You might get hit
    Donít even start with your *****iní
    Cos I turn a gear thatís bigger than your pension
    An Iíll be damned if you ride a tensioned single speed
    Hell no, you betta lose that Singulator, chief
    Wassup, donít make me ride that
    ĎCause itís got ramped COGS
    Donít ride it cos you gonna rack your balls, brah
    Crack under pressure, homie, you dreadiní it
    Cos you know beiní DFL is awful lonely
    I donít take no whiz test, I keep it real
    I got no license, Ďcause USAC is for dweebs bro
    An every time we with Ceas that fool rolliní up a fatty
    While Timmy said he straight had me

    I got one on it
    Itís the only one I need
    I got one on it
    ĎCause I ride a single speed
    I got one on it
    Lose the gears and not go back
    I got one on it
    Shifting is so very wack

    Hey, that bike is tight man
    It must be light man
    Looks like my bike that got stolen off the Caltrain
    You run, I chase
    Forget about police
    Donít need no 5-0, just rolled you flat in the street
    I wish I could buy some Ti
    Ainít in the budget
    Still rolliní stamped steel, but donít you judge it
    They be cheap yo, hecho Mexico
    Get me rings that donít bend when I slay, bro
    Ratio
    Calculate and write it down
    Up in the B-E-E the Town
    On iPhone apps we frown
    Just look up Sheldon Brown
    Donít you ease up
    Speed up through the Esco drink the S-T-O-N-E up
    Wit my hoodie bill up
    Now its time to roll-ah, Iímma roll ya
    Iím quick to throw a jump, poundiní dirt like a bulldozah
    Hold up, suck off my wheel is all you do
    You still get beat, Ďcos where I be is at the finish yelliní woo-woo

    As a parody it was great. As a serious musical effort, awful.

    I did LOL though.

    So shifting gears is whack,

    No, it was an ENO which was a blem. I didn't give him anything that was waiting to go out, most were display pieces i use at shows and whatnot.
