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'd ask to come over, but I'm allergic to cats, hockey and canadians.

I'll be in the Northwoods, eating turkey and shooting deer. Actually, neither of those things. A tour of the Viking Brewery is on the agenda though. Tim, I'll say hi to Menomonie for you.

I will be there as well. Can't wait to meet all of you and show you all my far superior crank length's.

I am newer technology than [165]. Therefore I am a lot younger. But, none the less I look forward to meeting my less superior rival who I will crush easily with my prowess.

Super Rookie-
It took you four minutes to log out and then log back in to post something this lame? I look forward to seeing both of your personalities there Wednesday!
Don't forget this weekend. We'll talk tomorrow night on the ride.
