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)

Oakland ride

Oakland, I'm back. Did you miss me? I missed you too. I'll be back this afternoon and might be riding around with Alex later tonight. Anyone in?

seeing i'm still in LA means i probably won't be back until 7 or 8 pm and i'll be too tired to make it out to the city to try and keep up with Judah (fat chance). Alex will be in Oakland tonight so i plan on meeting him and any other Oakland people are welcome.

ha! You're never slow. Honestly, I would come, but after driving for six hours and getting home that late i don't really see it happening. I'm sure you guys will be doing a pub crawl again soon... i promise i'll be there then.
