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)

On the 14th there is a Chicago century. That should be cool and there is always some good shows to see here.I dont know of any pie eating contests but we could always make it happen.
