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)

Hey Berubes. There was a posting on craigslist about a bike messenger job: http://portland.craigslist.org/trd/135825223.html. I would try out for it, but I'm leaving town for March. What are you guys hiring for at vincentes?

rr-
thanks, i think that's the position he applied for. he said it was on cl. i live in brooklyn now, not portland, but i'm guessing they need someone to serve, cook, and bartend to replace my brother- he just quit. aks for noah, he rides fixed too.
