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)

Ok, so I'm floating this idea a week in advance, and yeah, you read that right:

MPLSBFSSFGMUBBQ

Obviously, a lot of us live here (minneapolis) or will be traveling here for next weekend. There's tons to do Friday and Saturday, but I was considering a BBQ/ride the evening before (it may give any out-of-towners a heads-up on neighborhoods/streets/etc). While I've got a house I dont think it'd work as a venue for the BBQ - mostly as I've got no back yard.

So, I'm putting the call out to gauge the interest in this and see if anyone's got a better venue (house with grill) than I... your thoughts?

---also because there's been alot of planning done by the hometown crew (including SuperRookie) and it's time to put something back myself---

Sorry, won't make it there 'til Friday, but I definitely would welcome a headsup of the mean streets of MPLS.

I'd say Grumpy's Thursday night. It's easier than someone trying to host something, there's food options galore and I hear they have the beer on tap!

Downtown Grumpy's? I think the t-rock would be a better choice, especially if Pink Pigtails is working.

Say 6pm @ the t-rock?
