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)

I will be around for the CM, then will hopefully swing by Cal's for a bit afterwards. So I'll give you a lower case "i"

I was going to be there, but finances dictate otherwise. Going to see Social Distortion Sunday as a consolation prize.

I'd be up for it. Monkey mentioned doing a post-mass pub crawl if people were up for it. Not sure how long I'd keep from passing out, but I should be able to get some sleep on the train...

Stupid train leaving at 7am... Grr.

It's too bad you guys didn't wait until the actual end of summer to do this. I don't move into town until the 29th.

I'll still be hanging out over there the 29th and 30th and looking for stuff to do...

I think most other people will probably be getting back to jobs and stuff, though...

We should plan something for the 17th or the 24th of sept, since the 21st fall in the middle of the work week.

And by "something" I mean we should hang out at a park, drink 40's, and do drunken trackstands and skid competitions

I am unfamiliar with Chicago parks. Someone pick a park with a decent amount of greenery but also some good stretches of concrete.

I'd compete in skid competitions but I can't hold a track stand for ****.

Painting? Man, I thought it already looked good. You better do a decent job.
If you ask me, come out and ride and then paint your bike the next day. The bike will still be there.

Go out, and put tons of scratches and dents in your paintjob, then paint it the next day... You guys should have a derby, too!

I'm going to try to make it by 11:30. Catch the last set. I'll be the one in the Postal Jersey (i'm not kidding).

It's looks too good, that's the problem. I'm moving on August 31 or September 1, and the place I'm moving to doesn't have a convenient place to paint (the one I'm in now has an empty garage). So if I don't start doing this soon, I may not get the job done in time!
