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)

Fixed Gear, Chucks and Beer

Not too sure who's seen this ad, but I thought the Fixed Folk might enjoy:

We can't get any new belgium brews in FL. Every time I head West I'm sure to get a couple of 6 packs.... I put 'em in my suitcase like the song says.

Did anyone check out that LS wool jersey on the groovy goods page? That's on the way, as well as the bike bell for the tandem.

Fat Tire is seriously overrated. When I first moved out west I was so excited to be able to buy it, but it didn't have any staying power with me. Some of New Belgiums other beers are really good, like Blue Paddle and 1554.

Their Tour De Fat festival in the summer is a lot of fun. Crazy human powered rides, slow race, lots and lots of beer, and bands in the sun.

Or get one from Portland Cyclewear if you want the same jersey without the beer advertisement

I sure *hope* that Portland Cyclewear made it, because I took a chance with the XXL size fitting my 48" chest, and that's what they size their XXL as. I laugh at some of the Euro sizing I see, with 3XL and 4XL *maybe* fitting 44-46" at the chest. Frame sizes are the next problematic fit, after that.

Yeah, fat tire isn't anything special IMO. 1554, biere de mars and the trippel are great though. Maybe someday they will make it out here to DC...

I forgot about the Trippel, that's another good one. I'll have to dig for the biere de mars if it's still available.

New Belgiums brews are a little fruity tasting for me. Blue paddle and fat tire both have a Pepsi taste to me. Maybe if they come out with an IPA. Dang nice add though.
