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)

Nasty - good mate (i'd use the 'english/aussie' term starting with 'c' ending with 'unt' but id probably get in trouble)

Went to the osteo today who I met on the 'hell' ride (read: roadie ride of up to 150 lycra asses, doing up to 50kph, and me in jeans/trackbike) and he's straightening me out. Shoulder blade is way out and youve probably seen the fracture pic - 'police are you friends thread'

Putz says 'Stay in England!'

T.I.P. - You're never gonna get out of the 80's using words like 'rad' - thanks

Can I say that riding indoors, and on such a steep track is as much fun as all the riding ive done downhilling in the French Alps.

Bike is in emergency - new bars, fork, respray.

love yez all!

let em mesh good. i might see you out there in june when i have the zullo back in one piece.

BTW, I am pretty sure it is Thursday evenings unless northcote has another club only race night on wednesday: http://www.carnegiecycling.com.au/in...05&na=20050511

it looks great, so i have to get my ring back into gear and join CCCC (my local club) and take advantage of the invitation.

ATB with the recovery
