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 not 100% sure if can make it but i probably will ditch my schoowork to drink. always a good idea.

Bah have to work, and the Windsor's craptastic BB is currently stripped - no free time, no ride = no drinks. Would love to meet other East Bay riders, though, maybe try and set up some extended rides (20 - 50 miles) in the East Bay on the weekends. Have fun!

I wondered if it might be you, but it's kind of hard to tell with the tiny avatars.

maybe if you drank real beer, you'd understand that paying $5.50 for a pint of something good is worth it. of course, i don't really drink to get drunk lately. i drink because i like the taste of whatever i'm drinkin'.

anything worth doing is worth doing right.
