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)

California is my favorite state. I love it so much I'm considering leaving behind all my friends and family and moving cross-country just to live out there.

no. we got bad directions to mono from la, and ended up going up the west side of yosemite. a lot of passes were closed so we ended up going all the way up to sacramento to get the 50 across to the 395 and back down. 1000 miles in 36 hours. that was as close as we got to sf.

we're shooting at mono and tomorrow here at joshua tree, then back to nyc tomorrow night. no hanging out on this trip,

but i'll be back with ellen later this year, and we'll fly in to sf for sure
