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)

Amateur radio.

That's cool that Tony is a ham. Good to know there's other people on bikes with radios.

check the movie Frequency for HAM radio fun. Dennis Quaid's finest role. Besides being the rebel cutter in Breaking Away.
