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)

do you still have some of those shoe/pedal sets? i'd be more than happy to shoot you a few bucks and shipping for a size 10 jam. i've never tried clipless and have been wanting to... but i'm always broke. alas!

anyhow, i won't beg -- just let me know. i heard that your race was a ton of fun. glad that it worked out! too bad i live in ohio.

cheers, aaron

while we're on the topic, if anyone's got the equivalent of men's size 4 , i'd be willing to take them off your hands... because i assume you don't wear them anyway... since that's really small.... but i'm just sayin...

Shants has given up that alcoholic poison and puts 50% of his paycheck in a high-yield savings account like a good little boy.
