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)

Chicago: Ride on Tuesday night?

Now that all those out of town hosers are gone we can get back to having fun.

Tuesday, 9pm, Wicker Park?

I have a bunch of beer left over from a get together I had this weekend. I'll use the ride as an excuse to free up some space in my fridge.

I'd like to ride, but it looks like it'll be raining, so I can't really commit. maybe tomorrow I'll be gungho about riding in the rain.

Looks like Thursday is the first break in the weather, if you want to trust a forecast that far out. But I'd be down pretty much for any clear night this week.

Agreed. Let's see what all we can cram in G.b.x.'s fanny pack.

Two (2) cans of beer (upright), one (1) pack of cigarettes I shouldn't be smoking anyway, one (1) pair of rubbers gloves, one (1) suture packet and one (1) surgical mask. You know, just in case we find any souvenirs.

In. But I don't wanna see no sutures or rubber gloves or any of that other medical mumbo jumbo giboyeux or I'm outta here. Your stories already haunt my dreams.
