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)

Im starting to get worried. I got a set of phils laced to cxp33's waiting to be put on my new bike. Things are pretty easy going out here, but bikes still get stolen. Might be time for a new lock.

sucks to hear, will keep eye out. we need a vigilante bike theif beatdown squad in NYC. I'm paranoid so I bring two locks with me to work. I love the back with my kryto and the front tire with a cheap wire lock I got when I was in china.
