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)

CHI: Anyone want to ride Tour Stage 5 after work today?

I know it's cold as **** out there, but at least it's dry. I'm thinking of doing the "A Few Hills" route to keep me busy between getting home and going-out time. Anyone else interested?

Just a friend. The only person I know in Columbus...he always hangs out at that one bar that's the guy's name. Doesn't like bikes. Probably deserves a punch in the face.

Schloe, you wanna ride?

Larrys?

My parent's neighbors own that place. It's my favorite bar in the world.

We don't even go on until 11pm. So late, basically. We're enforcing a strict "no liquor before playing" rule, so once we're done with our set... cry havoc, let slip the dogs of war, etc.

I really hope we don't suck.
