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)

Naz Didn't Show Up.....Again.

Just saying. I got all bundled up in the cold, rain to see the kid and he was to soft to show up.

He owes me.

I also didn't show up. I did see the group riding together on
Augusta & Leavitt traveling west while I drove my car to O'Hare. Thought
about yelling something, but I couldn't think anything clever.

I didn't show up either. I was on a date. It sucked; I talked about BikeForums the whole time.

Three apartments in 45 minutes and then a client meeting downtown at Osteria vi Stato. Sorry, but I was having a nice dinner with clients downtown.

I'm soooo honoured that I was so badly missed and such.

Like you give a rat's ass.

Does sarcasm not register with people anymore on these forums? I forget.

Who said I was British? Do I sound British? Am I white? No.

I missed you too Ira and Tim. Last minute client meetings sort of suck, trust me.

You're right! It's the simple things I'm trying to get back to.

Petting dogs & watching TV. I accomplished both in the last 12 hours and I feel good. Good times indeed!

I'm actually listening to the Smoking Popes "Let's Hear It For Love" right now too. I thinking I'm turning emo.

Damn. Sorry I missed it guys. Bumpy flight home and serious jetlag led to me sleeping
the entire day Thursday. And I left my ipod on the plane . Where did you hit up?
Can it happen again soon? Naz + SR, i think you two should do some trust building exercises.
Naz, close your eyes and fall off your bike sideways while clipped in, and SuperRookie will catch you.
Then SuperRookie will fall and you'll catch him. Trust me, it works.

I initially read that as "..we played cricket this morning..." And I was about to say, AH-HA!! You ARE British!!!
