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)

This is mos def happening. It's official.

I have one more exam at 3:00. I'll be at the farmers market for a while afterwards. If you guys want to iron out some details, we can get a jump on a hotel reservation and I want a beer. I found a sierra nevada cap in my pocket this morning during my solar exam and placed it on the desk in front of me for inspiration/ motivation.

Oh Matt. If you're able to meet up we can grab the funny bike for you to see if your interested in me taking that down to piccolo for you.

WithNail. Whenever you're done with finals, give us a heads up on what we need to do to plan for this.

Locals. It looks like there will be 5 or more people heading down your way ready to partake in an alleycat. Please let us know if you need any help or ideas in organizing something.

Adam. Quit whining. That other thread doesn't say "official" anywhere. wus.

Mike. has that neon green junk come in yet?

you guys just don't understand the importance of information consolidation.

Eh, not yet. I'll let you know when it does, so you can approve it. (Any day now...) Buckles, velcro, straps, and other hardware should be delivered tomorrow.

That looks like the current plan, hotel for at least one night anyway. We'll be all ninja-like and get 4, 5, 6 people into the room though so it shouldn't be expensive per person. And Nick said he has a line on some $60-some rooms. Food and drink will be more expensive than lodging, I think.
