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 post any rides that get scheduled on the myspace group in this forum. No need to get involved with myspace if you dont want to. Its cool to be able to see everyone collected in one place though.

Stay off of Myspace.

unfortunately its the most used web 2.0 style app for social networking amongst my peers. ... Im sure over the next few years as this style of web application becomes more prevalent we will have more choices... but until then they can have my data. At least Mr Rupert will know Im 24 live in Sf and fugazi is my favorite band. heh

employers have been looking at myspace pages too...so those all-night-binge-drinking sessions that correspond with missed work days can now be figured out too.

they would probably rather document how many times you hit myspace or bikeforums during your workday! and its not just myspace.. why all the hate? haha.. its blogs in general.. everything you put up on the web is public so if you rant about the 7 tequila shots you did and the fact that you slept through your alarm on mspace or your blog or whatever its kinda a no brainer

there is something that bugs/irks (cant really figure it out) about places like myspace and blogs in general. Just a personal opinion, perhaps its the people you meet that tell you go check out their myspace place to learn who they are.
