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)

Portland (and messengers): Kristine Okins RIP

Thought I'd post this here as some of you are from Portland and some of you may well know Kris(tine) Okins, a Portland messenger. She was in a bad bike accident on Friday and she passed away yesterday.

She and her boyfriend were headed for the Worlds. Sadly that isn't happening.

She was a close friend of a friend and he's created a site in her memory.

Condolences and well wishes:

Man, this has been a rough year so far. Portland is such a bike friendly city, but I guess accidents can happen anywhere. Be careful out there, guys and gals.
