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)

Yo!

Anyone down for drinks tomorrow night? Ostro and I will be headed to Zeitgeist on Wednedsay night at around 7:30.

Come join for some celebratory jack and cokes because I am done with finals tomorrow!

Unfortunately I wont be riding the bike because I plan on wearing heels and being too inebriated to ride. But this is a great chance for people to come and meet the faces of their competitors for the big SF Alleycat on sat!

my friend and i rode past zeitgeist, but there was a line out the door, so we went to benders on S. van ness instead. there were a total of 12 people there, and the jukebox was cranked.

good times.

damn dude that wasn't a line at the door, it was simply people trying to stay in out of the rain smokers and the such, there really wasn't that many people inside, plus the patio was empty...

sillygirl & ostro...

great meeting you guys...

that was a crazy ride home in the wet...and with people of all walks of life following my strong smelling bag...that is the last time i store my bag at work close next to the clone room...as i walked by a couple of san franciscos' finest...they even gave me the "did you smell that guy" look...

note to the rest of you i don't ride in the rain softies when it rains that means you have the whole bar to yourself....next time....

as i start my day drinking a mug of TheraFlu with a couple shots of jamesons' of course just to try and clear up my sinuses a bit....but not from last night i have been fighting this for a couple weeks....i may have to breakdown and take antibotics...

Sorry I didn't show. I do ride in the rain, but Sonia was not feeling like being out in the rain last night. I picked up prizes for the race and headed home.

On a different note, I was counting prizes and it looks like we're going to have prizes for the first 15 people and one DFL. Some of them are a little chinzy, like the Phil Wood keychain hubs, and a hamburger bike-bell, but there are also 7 bags(Timbuk2, Chrome, and Lovelife), a set of tires, a chain, a hubset, a crankset, a wheelbuild and some other goodies too....

If it rains you just get to earn your prizes.

Also, with upwards of 16 prizes, if rain culls out the fair-weather cyclists, then there's more prizes for the real bikers....
