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)

the fixed gear forum meat 'n greet will be in chicago november 11-13.

it'll be an alleycat, brekky, drinky, and chilly, and supposedly some track events. i've been dying to hit chicago for a few years now, and i need the vacation anyway. i'm going. i think enLaCalle is in as well, pending gf approval.

who else? anyone want to travel together?

i got salome to give up a couch or floorspace or something for me. so i am set with accomodation. but i am sure other couch space will be available to whomever asks early enough.

If you'll be there, please post in the other thread as well - heads need to be checked and counted. If you're travelling by auto, please state that as well. If we can get enough vehicles, then heading to the track will be easier.

I wish I can go...boohoo... Gotta go to a wedding in Malibu that weekend and get with hot cali chicks...boohoo.... wait... thats a good thing... nevermind...

If it was on any other weekend then I'd be down, maybe next year....
What is up with everyone getting married? WTF? can't they be content with friends with benefits?
