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)

There used to be a shop on 3rd between Howard and Mission.

It catered to delivery workers.

Can someone please email me and tell me where you all get work done these days?

Providers of good information (including watering holes) will receive free hubs.

And do y'all still meet at Justin Herman for Mass?

I'm gonna be in town at the end of the month and I need commune w/ other sinners.

Thanks!

Matthew

Freewheel Bike Shop
1920 Hayes St - between Clayton and Ashbury

I don't drink so I'm not hip to the watering hole scene, but people are always talking about some place called Zeitgeist. I guess it's a biker bar.

I don't recall anything on third, it's all Moscone & art museums now. In the early nineties there was a place on 6th street two doors up from mission. If memory serves, it was called 'fixed gear' or something very basic like that. I use American Cyclery these days.

I think he's talking about Start to Finish. It's no longer there.

There's Road Rage on Folsom between 6th and 7th.

Watering holes where bikers hang:
The Crowbar on Broadway
Zeitgeist on Valencia
Cassidy's on Folsom

Usually a bit more expensive but for the most part they have what you need.
