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)

Well I'm not going to make it now. My damn chain broke in JP and I had to carry my broken baby home. I tried to shorten it a link but the chain was too short. It was the scariest/loudest thing that ever happened to me. I somehow managed not to crash though so I guess there is a bright side. Is it still going on Sundays too?

I was only a couple of blocks from where you live(I think) too. I was about two blocks down Centre when it went down. Now I have to take the train to work tomorrow which is the worst thing.

Nah, if you were out by Forest Hills that's the entire opposite end of Centre. I live just a couple blocks off Columbus. But still, I woulda hopped down with a spare link and tools. Ah well.

Too bad it didn't happen just an hour earlier. I believe Ferris Wheels is open until 8 on Thursdays. You hadda be right on their doorstep. Anyhow, off to the races.
