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)

Too bad it's in bum**** south Austin.

Ok, I'm done *****ing. I hope the rain is done in time for this. It looks like it could be fun. I'm going for the skid contest. Anything after that is just bonus.

NICE!!! I was going to email you about it. Something tells me you are holding back on that bunnyhop. You win the bunnyhop contest, Biff wins the skid, I guess I'll win the show up huffing and gasping for air contest.

ride around in a circle with a number of people, if you put one or both feet on the ground you out, the last person standing on there bike wins.
