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)

Chicago riders - can you identify the owner?

Hey All -
I saw this bike at the velo and the first thing I thought:
"Mayonnaise's Track Dream Bike"


Plus everyone here from Chicago seems to have P.I. jobs on the DL. Winner doesn't get last place.

ps - help me with my spelling...

look at what banning him and sending him out into the cold world all alone has done to his poor soul!

165 - I know who's bike that is. It was the guy who scolded me for my temporary lack of a helmet when we were at the track. I need to look up his name on the edrudolph website, but he's on either alberto's or turin.

Incidently, really nice guy despite the helmet facisim.

Yeah definitely. I've only been able to go a couple times after work.
When I get back from LA we'll definitely meet up.

Oh and to help with the rattling: I don't think anyone could ever beat that
guy with the cannondale in a race. He is significantly faster than anyone
else I've every ridden with. Not only that he also wears a team discovery
kit.

From now on Iím going to be just like Kwai Chang Cain and not make fun of anyone or their bikes. I will find pleasure in the abundance of life. If I see anyone on the bike path riding a Softride Iím going to remain humble and continue on to work. Follow my own path towards inner peace. Unless itís the last seven minutes of the show, then Iíll kick some....er....(deep breath)...[flashback ďbut Master Po, what if someone makes fun of me, my bike or my shaved head (legs)?Ē ďYoung Cain strive to be empty yet infinitely capable, see strength in weakness, weakness in strength]..calm. So you see Mr. 165, you cannot rattle my (carbon fiber Campy Record) cage because I am now a Priest. You donít seem to realize, My Life Is Good.

The pebble was not there to begin with, that was my only problem with the whole series.

One day, the trail ends for us all. Don't rush to get there. I think burritos are in the future - my treat.

Why don't we all have a Chicago End Of Summer Party. Let's go to Cal's this friday for music and beer. It's bike friendly. What say you?

The trail ends at Hollywood and somewhere south of 73rd street. Or were you talking about a different trail?
