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'm only 19. So I go to school, I'm majoring in Elementary Education. I work register at a small independent pharmacy. I make about $430 a month. Clearly, I'm slumming it in here with you people.

i'm a grad student (3rd year out of probably 5 or 6) in education. right now, i use poststructuralist/critical theories to understand discourse(s) in preservice teacher education.

ask me what i'm doing 6 months from now and it'll probably be something different.

the only thing constant is the bike.
