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)

Sam, I am busy trying to meet NAHBS deadline, so I cannot go this year. Maybe I can join you Chicago folks for festivities, though. If you are staying w/ Dave, it's in my 'hood. Gimme a call if you want.
