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)

No, I'm not talking about what goes on when [165] meets me at the track


I'm talking about waking up early, slurping down a few cups of coffee, meeting Steaktaco at Dunkin Doughnuts, riding the train for 70 minutes to Kenosha Wisconsin, getting to the track and having a giant thunderstorm rip open over us...

...fortunatly we figured it was going to rain to packed up our gear and drove down the street and were covered by the roof of a wonderful little mexican joint, sucking down Tecates and making a dent in an AMAZING lunch buffet that only cost $5.99.

Josh was super cool and drove us back to Northbrook where we talked **** about a few people, talked about bikes, and watched Steaktaco learn how to do a no-handed trackstand.

90 minutes later the train back to chicago arrives and they split steaky and I up on seperate cars. sniff sniff. I had to sit between a bunch of wasted high school girls (damnit, they weren't even hot!!!) and some 23 year old ******bag "thug" white kid (also wasted) who was bragging about his 8 month stint in county jail for his 3rd felony. Awesome. thanks to this face****, i now have headache.

IT BETTER NOT RAIN TOMORROW. I NEED MY VELODROME FIX!!!

That, my friends, is why today = veloSUCK.

ps. thanks again [165] for that nice thing you did.

dude - I was sooo tired from all that food. I just woke up from a nice nap and I feel all weird - gutweird. Awesome food...made me nappy. Now I am ****ing angry and demand better weather from tomorrow.

Thanks for bringing the pump - I think monkey's cat(s) tried to kill the hose on it though. Make sure Msngr gets his tire next week or a bloodfeud shall ensue.

Call me about tomorrow T. Anyone else on the early train?

sweetness. when are you planning on going? i don't know for sure, but if I go at all, I'm on the first train out. Josh also mentioned going out and being there around 9. Carlos may go too. we'll see, I'm waiting a few hours before I check the weather again and decide if I should set my alarm or not.

considering our luck out there today—and the fact that I'd like to go to sam's club tomorrow to pick out dinner napkins—it'll take 0% chance of rain to get me out there.

that would make 3 weeks no track. ugh. at least I had a good time chatting, and eating, and then eating some more.

To whom it may concern: I'm not going tomorrow.

I THINK, i'm going to take monday off from work, get my nappyass hair trimmed, and hit the velo then, instead. Anyone want to blow off work and Velo it up with me Monday?
