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)

S.F. Recon mission?

Since the only people i know in San Francisco ride fixed gear, then this is the only place i could put it.

Anyone down to cruise over to daly city and take pictures of an apartment ( from the ouside ) and email them to me. I'll be there around Jan 12th and I pay in alcohol, or vegitarian food (for you wierdos). Pm me for details.

oh and. fixed gear, track, fixed gear, track-track.

She graduates next sunday. She starts her new job mid January. We fly out the 20th. And after Christmas and New Years we'll be rollin into town. I just need to pick up an eno hub so I won't feel like a scab.

Yeah, you catch more flies with beer, or something like that. If I don't have any out-of-town plans or pressing issues you can count me in too.

Plus its only like 7 miles to downtown. (I think). Everything is kinda spread out here so im used to having to go further than that. If i was single, I'd probably just sleep on someones balcony and messenger and race until I couldn't ride anymore. But alas, i gotz priorities.

is it in westlake village? or on lake merced? daly city isn't too horrible. bart is there and so is the freeway and parking. plus the shopping center isn't disgusting. for a quieter place thats 10 minutes from the city, its not too bad.

If you'll still be a helicopter mechanic, Daly City is also closer to the airport.
So you be rolling into town the 12th of Jan?
Let us know the truck unloading date so we can plan on being there to help.

Inkd, you still on schedule for Jan 12th?
It is a Thursday so I have to work.
Maybe you can time unloading the truck for a weekend day.
